These 2 universities are well above all the others that offer similar courses. Not too many unis offer these courses at undergraduate level. It's mostly postgrad.
Those that I know offer these courses are University of South Wales, Plymouth and Bournemouth.

I went to Royal Holloway this year taking that course. The campus is amazing and teachers are really good, even though I withdrew because it wasn't the right course for me I would still recommend it to people passionate about cyber security, just make sure you study the mathematics for it beforehand so that you're not behind in class (which is what I did) and learn basic programming if you haven't done it before then I definitely would recommend it. Lectures are informative, you also get extra lectures if you've never done programming, there are classes for students who struggles with the maths side and there are lab sessions where we had to code in Java and do group work together. The university is really good, the only problem I had was the social life, but since you're a CS student I don't think you're going be going out a lot anyway since you will be very busy but yeah the university is quite far from Central London so it isn't going to be lively but if you're the person who likes nature then RHUL.
