University preference

I am an international student. I want to pursue computer science in UK but I am confused between these universities: Uni of East London, Uni of Essex, Coventry Uni London, Greenwich Uni. Which uni is better for CS among these or is there any other tier 2 uni which is better for CS

You should look at university rankings and see which of them are better for CS specifically. For other ‘Tier 2’ unis, it really depends on your grades. Some will quickly reject you if your grades (or predicted grades) don’t fit their requirements. Go onto UCAS and you can find all courses at all unis.

Can you please help me with it? I am very confused. I'll be very grateful to you. Please!
PS: I have scored 96% in my 12th exams.

Ok, so ive looked at the rankings and they seem to go
1) Essex
2) Coventry
3) Greenwich
4) East London

Also, do you have the UK equivalent for a 96% so I can see which unis would accept those grades?

What country/qualification is your 96% from?

Which country are you in? Is Kent a possibility or Oxford Brookes?

None of them are particularly stellar and I certainly wouldn't be paying international fees to attend these for Computer Science. Do you have a specific area of CS you are interested in?

Keele is respected and Buckingham offers teo years degrees so calculate costs with that in mind..

You'd have far more choice in September 2023 ..
