    I have recently received offers from glasgow and Newcastle, and cannot decided which offer holds an advantage over the other. Both have the same requirements Glasgow: BSc Computing Science (4years) Newcastle: BSc Computer Science with year in industry(4 years)Glasgow does have an ranking advantage over Newcastle, Internationally and in the UK itself.. Never been to either city, which wouldn’t really be a problem as I would have to adapt to either one..And does having a year in placement hold a big advantage over choosing Glasgow as it might be more prestigious on paper with the rankings.Which one has a better Cs department if anyone knows? How are the tutors, how good is the course.. And no I cant get to the university being an international student!

    I'm a fan of years in industry, but I imagine you can suspend studies and do your own. Have a look at what you study additionally at Glasgow .

    The student satisfaction rates appear to eb a lot higher at Glasgow.

    Maybe contact some CS students at each uni?
