Manchester, Southampton or Durham for computer science?

Durham:
Pros - Prestigious,Ranks higher in tables than Southampton and Manchester, (in general and computer science rankings) best campus
Cons - Small department, city life?, , low student satisfaction ratings, Course seems to be less exciting than at other unis

Southampton:
Pros - Nice facilities, computer science one of the flagship courses
Cons- A degree from Southampton doesn't sound as impressive as the other two? (As far as Im aware of)


Manchester:
Pros- Greater global reputation, slightly more prestigious than southampton, best city of the 3
Cons: ranks lowest in CS out of the three

Important factors to me include employers reputation, opportunities for business (e.g. networking, meeting people etc.), teaching quality.

Out of the three, Id probably pick Durham, or if not, then maybe Manchester. But Liverpool FTW! John Moores is good for computer science

Hmmm. Where would you want to live for those several years? Which place speaks to you the most? With the Exception of Durham and other similar universities in smaller towns, you're likely to grow roots in the city you study in. Get an intern, stay for summer, and the motivation to move decreases, because you know the workplaces, the people, the city itself, etc.
