    Hi , so I did BTEC at College and got Triple Distinction* in BTEC Level 3 Extended Diploma in Web and Multimedia. After graduation, I’m looking for a career in Web Development, App Development, Software Engineering, basically Coding and Programming with HTML, CSS, PHP, Java, MySQL, etc.
    I’ve got 5 GCSEs (including English and Maths) I got C in both.
    I want to apply to 5 universities that are quite good and have good reputation... and also good for my course.

    Thank you.

    It sounds like you are more interested in a software engineering degree than a CS degree. A tricky thing with rankings is that they tend to only focus on CS.

    The Software Engineering at Qub is very good and you would have a solid chance of getting in there so that might be worth checking out.

    Doesn't answer your question, but have you considered a higher apprenticeship? Got two friends on one right now in WebDev and they thoroughly enjoy it.

    I am going to apply for an apprenticeship in November as I’ve got a whole year to gain some experience. Because it’s too late to start uni this year. If you have any apprenticeship companies/agencies suggestions like QA Apprenticeship then please let me know. Thank you
