    I recently changed my course from a 5 year MEng in Computer science to a 4 year BSc so I can do an MSc at a different Uni but am quite unsure at which I'd like to do it.

    People who have done Computer science masters/ studied comp sci; what would you rate Universities for their comp sci masters courses?

    Why?

    Are you home student in England? An MSc is more expensive and you won't get the same level of SFE support as you do with an MEng.

    I don't want to not have the option to do a Master's elsewhere. The MEng course I'd applied to is 5 years at the same university which I just think I don't want to do.

    I was also advised that MSci is deemed higher than MEng due to it being a postgraduate qualification whereas MEng is undergrad.

    Also, yes. I'm a British student

    It's only 5 years if you do a year in industry (which is a good idea).

    An MEng is equivalent to BEng+MSc to all intents and purposes. You can do a PhD with an MEng.

    Also an MSc will likely cost £10k tuition plus living costs. You can get a postgrad tuition loan for £10k but you can't also get a seperate loan for living costs (i.e. you can't get the maintenance loan available to undergrads).
