Hi,

So I'm sorta looking for advice on which of these unis I should go for, I have applied and received offers from all of them.

Greenwich, Westminster, East London, Goldsmiths also Brighton but I want to live in London, not Brighton.

Greenwich was and sorta of still is my first choice but I'm seeing people say it has a bed rep? does it and are any of the other unis better for Computer Science?

Thanks for any help.

A "bed rep" sounds extremely interesting! 😆

I know someone who studies biomed at Westminster and she was saying they’re teaching is real good plus she’s fitting in well. I guess you might wanna consider Westminster. Plus it’s got a good rep compared to Greenwich and east london

Hi, I would put Goldsmiths as my first choice as it's definitely the best Uni out of all your 5 choices.

For my insurance choice...Greenwich or Westminster

From working as a careers adviser for many years, I just know that it is the one with the overall best reputation.

I have just checked the Complete University Guide, which is a decent league table that you can access online. They have placed Goldsmiths 58th out of 110 Unis in the country for Computer Science. The others are lower with the University of East London being the lowest at 87th. League tables aren't everything but they do give you a bit of an idea.

Well, maybe the OP likes the parts of London his Unis are in. Personally I would prefer Brighton.

Never been to Brighton, even though I lived in Sussex once upon a time.

You could use unistats to compare them. That's what I did, I found it really helpful.
