Hi,

I've made a decision to enroll myselves into an Online MSc in Computer Science programme, and these two stand out with their offers (at least in Europe). I've done lots of effort to get the most informations on both, and what I've concluded thus far is that the York University may be a bit more prestigious, while the CS department at the uni of Bath is a bit superior. Personally, both curricculums seem great and I have no preferences regarding those. I'm fairly certain that I can't make a mistake whatever I choose, but would like to hear an opinion if someone is willing to share? Thank you

I am also trying to make the same decision at the moment, having had offers from both.

Based on limited info, my observation was that the Bath modules sounded a lot better, covering things like functional programming which is sought-after in the industry I work in at the moment. I also noticed that individual modules at Bath are smaller in credit value than at York, and obviously the Bath programme is longer (albeit much more expensive), so i'd hope that this would make it less intense, and so more manageable around work.

I am leaning towards Bath at the moment for those reasons. However, it's hard to find any reviews or threads on the Bath course online, so these are all just assumptions.

Thanks for the opinion.

I'm kinda leaning towards York atm because one of the main reasons for me is to add another line to cv (I do understand its kinda cheesy of me, but I have some work experience and much of the knowledge I could acquire from programme like this I already have).

In that regard, York seems a better option given the fact its cheaper, shorter and the start date is sooner, as simple as that.

I would say that surely one cannot make a bad choice from those two honestly

Have you enrolled on the York course?
I am almost set on the Bath course but having second thoughts to switch to the York one.

Problem is it seems hard to find any experience of the York course.

I'm not sure that York is more prestigious. League tables aren't everything (and Russell Group is overrated), but Bath has established itself as a top 10 university in national rankings, whereas York is more like top 20. York has a better international reputation (neither are amazing), but Bath ranks higher in CS league tables. Both seem like good universities but so far I've been seeing better feedback for Bath's online MSc than for York's and I got a much better first impression of Bath during the admissions process.
