Lincoln vs Swansea for Computer Science. (vs Coventry?)Watch
Which university has the better Computer Science program?
Where would I have more chances to find a part time job?
Where do I have more chances to get an internship after my first year at college?
Hello! I'm an international student looking to study in England. My final average is 8.51/10, which is the equivalent of AAB-BBC, depending on university.
My counselor has advised me to look at a number of universities, and I got it down to Lincoln vs Swansea, with Coventry being a third option. My problem is that my parents are unable to support me financially, so I need to pick the university where I have the most chances to get a part time job, the rent is cheap, and, after my first year, an internship in software development.
I've seen that there are a few part time jobs in Lincoln and Swansea as well, but I think there are a few more internship options in Swansea. But in Lincoln I can also study AI, which is a subject of interest for me.
I am already working this year, hoping to get at least £2000 by the time I need to leave. But £2000 won't last me forever, so I need to find a part-time job in the first two months, to support myself financially. I can work anything except for jobs that deal with body fluids, because of my weak stomach. I am not picky, and if I didn't vomit every time I see a tiny amount of puss, I'd truly work anything, just so I can support myself.
Thank you so much for all your help!
Also, I know this is a thing of luck, but any idea on how many part time jobs are in Swansea? Or how many internship opportunities for software development?
About Brexit: I'm coming from an EU country (Romania) and I'm a bit afraid of my fate after Brexit. As I said, I need a part time job to survive. My parents have no means of supporting me. Do you have any idea of I would still be able to work in the UK, since I will be a student there? Otherwise, would it be wise to apply for a work permit instead?
And, without that student loan, I cannot pay for my studies. I know the Government has extended the loan to the 2019-2020 timeframe, but does this mean I can finish all the years with the student loan, or, starting my second year, I'll have to pay international taxes?
