I have two offers from the University of Essex (MSc Computer Networks and Security) and Swansea University(Cyber Security, MSc). Both of them are Master of Computer Science. I wanna know which one has a higher reputation in the UK because I wanna have a job earlier after graduation. Basic on my finding, University of Essex Global QS rank 370, ranked by Computer Science in the UK (Good University Guide 45, Guardian 85, Complete University Guide 25) Swansea University Global QS rank 462, ranked by Computer Science in the UK (Good University Guide 8, Guardian 18, Complete University Guide 25) I saw the University of Essex has a higher ranking in global QS ranking. However, Swansea University Times ranks very high in Good University Guide, Guardian, and Complete University Guide. Which one has a higher reputation and higher quality of the CS program in the UK? Any advice or suggestions welcome!

I dont think there is a significant difference between either uni reputation wise.

Perhaps have a look at their careers departments online, most uni offer CV/cover letter tailoring as well as support for interviews and put on careers fairs, so make sure you go to a uni which has these services for free.

If there's still not a lot in it, look at the modules which make up the course and see what seems more attractive.
