    In terms of university courses, there's a lot of overlap between CS and SE. However, in general, SE should look at paradigms, best practice and theory, searching, sorting etc. On the other hand, CS should look at more deep theory, Operating Systems, networking, HCI, databases.

    Most of what you study will depend on the course at whichever university you end up going to.

    I think University is irrelevant tbh for the most part, just pick a uni that has course content you will enjoy and do a placement year, as long as you get really good first year results to get a placement position and an overall 2:1 then becoming employable shouldnt be an issue.

    Thanks, for the answer. I understand it but to have a wider view of this, do you know some uni that are at same level or a bit better in London?

    So firstly, how old are you? I'm asking because I don't know anything about the Italian education system, and how the courses that you have done equate to A Levels and UCAS points.

    The universities that you've listed are mid to low tier institutions according to the league tables I've just checked, so they're likely to have fairly low entry requirements. When would you be looking to start university?

    Looking at the courses, there is a lot of similarities. If you look at 70% of universities they're going to have very similar module titles. The difference is in the course content, the facilities, and the quality of teaching.
