I have offers from Manchester, Edinburgh, St Andrews, Leeds and Glasgow. I'd already ruled out Manchester and Edinburgh, Manchester due to not liking the feeling I got from the uni and Edinburgh due to the bad student satisfaction/support. My offers from Leeds, Glasgow and St Andrews are AAB/AAB/ABB respectively.

I've visited St Andrews and Leeds on the offer holder days and preferred St Andrews, and I'm visiting Glasgow in a couple weeks. I'm not overly interested in going into research immediately after my undergrad, I'd prefer to go into work. Does anyone have any particular advice for where I should choose? I'm leaning towards St A due to really liking the offer holder day and the feeling I got from the department, but if I firm it I won't have an insurance as it's my lowest offer, I'm not sure if that matters though. I'm predicted A*A*A*.

If you like St Andrews, then firm it. The alternative is firming a university that you don't like as much, which would be crazy.

yeah i guess that’s the obvious thing to do. it was more whether i’d be losing out by not going to one of the others.

As someone who studied CS @ UoE, your gut feeling is certainly not spurious; the bad student support is reality.

sorry for not replying, I never log on to here anymore! chose st andrews, super happy with it, they’ve been really good with covid stuff imo (got a refund on my accomodation after I decided to study from home, no issues), really enjoying the course and flexibility too
