    So I've had an offer from Abertay for computing, but I would like to know what the reputation is for this course at this uni? I've heard that there's a lot relating to computer games and design there, but I've not heard that much about computing itself. Can anyone help?

    Hi, Im in my second year at Abertay doing computing. Its a pretty interesting course and you learn quite a lot of practical skills. It is theory light, so you don't get given much in the way of maths, the most you will be doing CS/mathematically ish is Data Structures and Algorithms. The lectures are great, be sure to attend them as the classes tend to be quite large as you are sharing lab time with (Ethical Hackers and Gamers) So far I have enjoyed it. However it depends on what you are looking for in a degree. Abertay has a good reputation with games / computing / Ethical hacking. Good luck OP
