Not meaning to sound harsh but If i googled this I could find the answer very quickly depending on your definition of good.

http://www.surrey.ac.uk/undergraduate/computer-science

this is Surrey they are a good university but are not Russel group. they have an excellent careers service they ask for ABB

http://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/under...er-science-bsc

Cardiff ask for ABB/AAB so bit higher but you know. It depends on your definition of good but for what I would consider as fairly decent your options are a bit fin Cardiff and Surrey are decent unis though. A lot of Russel group and elite universities ask for AAA+

But if your not able to put in the 5 mins googling of effort to find an answer for this what makes you think your going to put the several hundred hours effort needed to get those grades?

Yeah Computer Science

http://university.which.co.uk/univer...00-i101-409522
http://university.which.co.uk/aston-...ears-9000-g400
http://university.which.co.uk/queens...000-g404-62244
http://university.which.co.uk/teessi...ears-7950-g400

would all be worth a look - try to find courses with placement years

I wouldn't consider these good universities I guess this is the point people have a different understanding of what good is.
You I assume I might be wrong would assume all universities are good including London Met and Anglia Ruskin.

I obviously have elitist standards.

I guess Swansea aren't awful though their graduate salary isn't exactly brilliant for computer science.

Did you miss the OPs request for suggestions of universities offering ABB or BBB? Graduate salary is highly influenced by where graduates work - any university where substantial numbers of graduates work in London will have high grad salaries - but those graduates will have very low disposable income and may not be in particularly great jobs. https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-l...london/swansea

FWIW the universities that are particularly good for comp sci are not the same group of universities that would have hit your radar as good for maths.

Actually I googled it. http://www.thecompleteuniversityguid...uter%20science

Surrey are 15th and Cardiff are 22nd. Although one league table in itself is not so reliable I do notice that the same universities pop up a lot. Sometimes computer science and maths are linked eg maths with computer science etc. So computer science was already on my Radar but obv not as much as maths

It's not a simple 1 to 1 relationship though - see the graph - three of the 5 universities I suggested rank 10-20 places higher in CS than in maths (which considering there are only 70 universities ranked for maths and over 100 for CS you would expect to skew in the other direction). The fourth is Queens Belfast - a russell group university that tends to struggle to recruit rest of the UK students due to it's geographic location. The fifth (teesside) doesn't offer maths and is one of the main centres for the UK games development industry (primarily due to the university).

Even in the top 10 for comp sci Southampton ranks 6th but is unlikely to have been in your consideration for maths (unless you're particularly interested in OR which is it's real maths strength) and Manchester ranks 9th for compsci and 23rd for maths.

I dont recall identifying this as a perfectly correlated 1 to one relationship. I just noticed A lot of universities that are good for maths are also good for computer science.

Southampton are not at the top of my Radar there are other places I would definitely prefer to go. However they Don't score too bad 27th for maths is not brilliant but its not Terrible and their figures for graduates are fairly okay as well. I wouldn't feel ecstatic about going their but I would say their is nothing to be ashamed of in doing so.

Yeah Computer Science
UEA, Swansea (integrated masters is AAB however - which I do currently), Reading, Sussex, QMUL, Cardiff, Leicester, Surrey.

Also consider pushing harder for AAB, then you can consider: KCL, Liverpool and Kent.
