    Hello everyone,
    I am an international student who got a conditional offer for Computer Science with Business & Management (3-year BSc) at Uni of Manchester, and since I cannot visit the university itself, I was hoping anyone who is familiar with the course, department or the university itself and the city in general could shed some light on what it's like? I plan on returning back home after I finish my degree so I picked Manchester because of the really nice reputation - how good is it considered especially for CS? Does it have a good reputation? I also am considering Sheffield University and Bristol University but I'm leaning more towards Manchester as I liked the course more, though I heard it isn't necessarily a top place for other courses which concerns me. Thank you!

    Since you already know you will be heading home think about what will make a difference to employers at home. Are they worried about reputation and if so then it's something to consider. Otherwise focus on course structure and what the uni offers in terms of student experience and all this can be found online. The uni may be able to put you in touch with current or former students.
