    Data science is still a relatively young course in all those uni. In terms of general CS/Statistics reputation, pretty much most rankings would say

    1) QMUL*
    2) Royal Holloway
    3) City

    QMUL is part of the Russell Group, if that is important to you. I would favour QMUL if you were able to do the industrial placement year too.

    Hi Aswath Sha,

    Have you had a chance to visit all the universities you are interested in? I find that one of the best ways to see if a university is right for you is to take yourself there to experience it. You'll be able to speak with current students and academics to get a better understanding of the course content and how it will prepare you for your future career.

    At Royal Holloway, in addition to our departmental support, we have a strong Careers & Employability Service that helps all of our students from finding internships and checking your CV to mock interviews that help you prepare for the real thing. You can also find a list of modules for your course on our website here.

    We are located 40 minutes by train from London so our students have the best of both worlds. I'm a recent graduate myself and found that I frequently traveled to London for the theatre and galleries, but also had the option to relax locally by Virginia Water Lake and head into town for some shopping.

    I understand it's a big decision to make, so please let me know if there is anything else I can help you with!
