And what A-level or equivalent qualifications do you have, and likely predicted grades?

So you are applying next cycle for entry in 2020

No, in 2019. I know the deadline for applications is on Tuesday 15 January.
I have Diploma di Esame di Stato (80/100).

So that's equivalent to BBB at A-level?

The deadline is that date, but it's reasonably likely many universities you would be considering will still accept applications after the 15th.

-Edinburgh Napier - BEng Cybersecurity & Forensics - GCHQ certified

I'm totaly agree with you about looking at uni rankings and the importance of the place where I'll live. Because of that I can't decide.
What do you think about these other universities and cities? Is Portsmouth always been your first choice?

I've been looking at Bournemouth University too.
Is Bournemouth always been your first choice? Why did you choose BU over other universities?

The units are very interesting and practical. The assignments and teaching is designed to be as close to real life as possible so you’re using a lot of skills that you will probably use in your future job.

Also, the city itself is very nice and has one of the (if not the best) beaches in the country. There’s loads to do in this city which I liked.

Just to add to this list further:

Cardiff offer a Computer Science for Security and Forensics degree.

And also, the Computer Science (Information Security) degree at Royal Holloway had an optional module in Digital Forensics when I did it a couple of years ago, and seems to still be offered, which is taken from the ISG's MSc Information Security, could be worth the OP considering.
