King's College London vs University of Southampton (Computer Science BSc)Watch
I am an international student, and I have applied for a Computer Science BSc course in UK. I have received offers, and now I have to decide between Uni of Southampton - Computer Science BSc and King's College London - Computer Science BSc.
I am very confused, because basically I would choose London because of many reasons (location), which is King's. I have checked the "The complete university guide" and King's is situated on the 19th place for Computer Science Subject, while Uni of Southampton is ranked the 11th. I read that Southampton is a good uni for CS so I'd like to know if it's true..
I would choose London because of its variety of opportunities, internships and job offers. I also want to get a job while in college/university because I want to earn some money so that I could manage myself and from my point of view it would be easier to get a job in London than in Southampton. But London is very expensive!! Which uni is better for job prospect in the future?
Secondly, I really want my uni's course to be good and I'm interested to do after the BSC a master's information security/Cyber Security. I can't find information about King's College's Computer Science course on the internet and I am worried about this, I think it might be unpopular or not as good as I thought. If your are aware of this course at King's please give me some information regarding it.
Thank you very much!!!
Hi, I'm an international too and I have exactly the same problem. Personally, I think London is a better place to live and CS at King's is better in the QS and Times Higher Education world rankings, but I've also seen a lot of positive comments about CS at Southampton. I'm very confused and I don't really know what to choose for my firm choice.
