    So i have 3 uni's in mind
    Sheffield
    Liverpool
    Swansea

    all offer computer science as well as software engineering. Heres the thing though, i have no clue at all what the difference is. I also want to do one of those 2 courses WITH something else so like artificial intelligence or maths etc.
    Honestly want i want from uni is to be clear on coding to the point where i can teach myself more. I don't have interest in the game industry as it seems a bit cliche to me but i do want to learn how to make my own game using game engines as my own thing, as well as being able to crack and creating cheats for games. But that is something i would do in my own time during Uni.

    So what i am asking for is, which should i do and with what? I am looking for a job where i can eventually work myself up to around 60k. Which course will be better for jobs etc. There is a course from Liverpool which is Computer science with Software engineering but it is not accredited. I also applying courses with a year with work experience.

    I know i want to do computer science but my mind is absolutely messed up on what branch to go with.

    here are the course lists i am looking at

    What i predict myself : B B A

    Hey, i'm doing software engineering at swansea. For the first year you'll be doing computer science so you can easily swap later on once you find out a bit more.
