No-one is going to do your research for you. Use data science - make a spreadsheet of your priorities, look each course up, fill in the data, science it!

If you've got a substantial amount of data science at undergrad, then you should know where the major research departments and people are, and that's where the strongest PG departments are as a consequence.

If you haven't got substantial amounts of data science already, then it's competitive and you probably need to apply to that whole list in order to get a decent range of offers.

You don't really have any decision to make until you hold offers.

Actually I already hold the conditional offers from above universities and I did look up at the course structure from all these universities, on the face of it each of them looks good with Royal Holloway and bath offering (1+1) which can be really helpful since I am an international student
now coming to the point you mentioned about making a spreadsheet I already made it but the thing is there is no specific ranking related to data science most of the rankings(QS TIMES REF TEF GUARDIAN NSS) are focused on overall university ranking although the Computer Science department ranking of Edinburgh,Manchester and Kings is good but still there is no clear winner, hence I wanted someone who has gone through the same situation or has an idea about this particular course that would really help.
