I have received an offer from both of them and I am not sure which one choose. I can't visit them, I am not from UK.

Hi. I can’t speak about these unis with respect to your subject, but just going purely on reputation and employability, Kings is considered a better uni, and overall uni rankings support this. However, for all I known QM has a world-class computer science department and the employment rate from their degree is superior to Kings... if so, then that is obviously something to consider. Congratulations on the offers anyway!

That’s no problem Just a note regarding the ranking, on the Complete University Guide league table for Computer Science, King’s are 18th in the UK and QM are 40th (https://www.thecompleteuniversitygui...mputer science)

Overall, King’s are 25th and QM are 41st, plus Kings has a more respected reputation. If you have no preference on which course you prefer, then I would say go with Kings, especially as the location is far more central (the Strand, Waterloo etc) while QM is out at Whitechapel, which is, although still rather central, a very different area (although pretty trendy).... different horses for different courses though haha
