Hi Andre,

My name's Lydia and I'm a student studying physics at the University of Bath. A lot of my friends do computer science here, and really enjoy it- so if you've not considered Bath could be worth a look.

Bath is in the top 10 universities for computer science in the UK for 2018.

And Bath as a university ranks 5th in 2018 Guardian's university league table.

I really wouldn't be too focused on league tables though, as at the end of the day they are always changing and an employer will see a Computer Science degree from a reputable university as just a tick in the box, and is highly unlikely to choose one candidate over the other based on the university (unless maybe we're talking Oxbridge).

What an employer does base there decision on however is the extra curricular side of a CV. And I feel that Bath really excels here.

Here's a list of some of these CV-boosting activities Bath offers:

* The Foreign Languages Center - offers free weekly language classes in a variety of languages at a range of levels: http://www.bath.ac.uk/flc/university...nts/index.html

*Skills training sessions held each week on topics ranging from leadership to personal development and more. See some of the sessions going on currently at: https://www.thesubath.com/skills-training/

*A resource called 'Bath Connection' where Bath graduates can sign and offer free and friendly career advice to current university students looking at careers in their profession: http://www.bath.ac.uk/alumni/help/en...ath-connection

*A building called 'The Edge' which is for arts, music, drama and dancing and offers professional classes from everything from oil painting classes, to saxophone lessons, to Introduction to DJing. These are open to the public and so of high quality, however students get a large subsidy on the price. Find out more here: https://www.edgearts.org/student/

*Bath's strong industry ties- we have a huge percentage of students go on the industrial sandwich placement as part of their degrees. I personally did a study year abroad instead, as we have ties with many foreign universities including ones in Hong Kong, Germany and America to name a few.

I know this all sounds like a massive marketing spiel, but Bath's extra curricular resources and activities are really something to shout about!

And like I said before, most of the 'top' universities are seen as being on a par according to employers, so its worth more to ask yourself what else is important to you in a university: campus or city/ distance from home/ place itself- do you want a bustling city of somewhere pretty? etc

Hope this helps ! If I have spiked your interest, then please check out Bath's computer science course page here Good luck
