Queen Mary will be brilliant consider factors like commuting and travel into consideration when deciding.
Have you looked at the course detail for each one - the optional units for all years of the course etc?
Have you visited these Unis, or looked at the campus tour films on YouTube or thought about the city/areas of London they are in?

Cardiff or Swansea are probably 'the best' for CS from your list.
Westminster isnt noted for anything much and certainly not CS so pick somewhere else as your Insurance.

Being in Swansea or perhaps Cardiff to a lesser degree is massively different to London. The pace of life is considerably slower and it is much safer and airy. Swanseas campus is on the beach and CS is in the brand new Computtional Foundry building. You need to ask yourself what environment is right for you. Do you want the hussle and bustle of being in London or the more peaceful surrounds of Royal Holloway or Swansea.

I enclose some videos of Swansea to help you decide.

The courses all are pretty similar - none of them are very maths oriented, which is why i chose these unis in the first place, so apart from that i don’t mind the course content. Swansea and Royal Holloway have really nice campuses, but I don’t want that to be that big of a factor when I decide, I think I’m more concerned about the quality of the course rather than where it’s located. And thanks, I think I’ll pick Swansea as my insurance as their conditions are BBB but they seem to lenient with grades anyway.

Thanks, I’ll check these out! I think I might put Swansea as my insurance.
