    Hey I was just wondering if there are people here who applied for computer science with start in late 2017.

    My application was sent to Surrey, QMUL, Greenwich, Cardiff and last but not least Warwick. What about you?

    Did you already received an offer?

    Yeah the faculty in QMUL seems to need some time. What is your favorite choice of university?

    Would you go to Greenwich? I got an offer there.

    I've applied for Durham, Warwick, KCL, Edinburgh and Lancaster for comp sci. I've only had a response from KCL so far but I'm really hoping for an offer from Durham.

    Yes City is great. Heard a lot of good things.

    Really? I'm not that sure about Greenwich. Probably prefer QMUL.

    Some unis do exams that you can take related to the course. Usually in January/February of the year you're applying for. For Aberystwyth, you can do two exams on the 31st of January in subjects of your choice (I'm doing Comp Sci and IT). If you achieve top results(probably 90%+), you get an institute scholarship worth up to £2000 a year. If you just miss that bracket, you could get a scholarship worth £1000 per year. If you just miss that bracket, but got the below bracket, you can get a Merit Award worth £1000(one-off). If you achieve good results, but don't hit the top brackets, you'll get an unconditional offer.

    Oh, and you also get guaranteed halls accomodation after the first year if you get the scholarships.

    Yes some teachers are awesome, a few you could sleep just listening to. But it's a good place and there's a bunch of support if you're struggling
