I imagine they are ranked much the same to be honest. Surrey would probably be better for social life and both have good connections to London.
Have you visited them to see which feels like a better fit?
Hello,

It's great to hear you're considering Surrey for your MSc! Both Surrey and Royal Holloway are highly regarded universities and have excellent data science modules. Our MSc in Data Science programme is designed to equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to tackle real-world data analysis problems.

The course provides a comprehensive range of compulsory and optional modules that allow you to tailor the course to your interests. You'll have the option of completing a year-long work placement, where you'll have the opportunity to apply your knowledge to industry-relevant challenges. This placement also allows you to explore the business value of data-oriented research and development.

This course will provide you with a solid technical basis in the ideas and practises of data science, machine learning and data mining, practical business analytics, database systems, and cloud computing. Optional modules in information security, natural language processing, and advanced artificial intelligence can be added to your MSc to further tailor it. Finally, you'll write a dissertation in which you can delve into a topic that attracts you. The dissertation assignments entail tackling current real-world issues, which are frequently linked to cutting-edge research.

The university's facilities include a £1.7 million multi-purpose Computer Science Laboratory with cutting-edge audio-visual equipment, six open access PC labs and four dedicated specialist labs, specialist desktop solutions such as software development, research packages, and dedicated printing, a high-performance computing (HPC) cluster, an access grid node (AGN) with a 6m screen for video conferencing, presentation sharing, and software demonstration, and free software.

I'd recommend visiting the university and speaking to lectures, getting a feel for the campus. Everyone will have personal preferences, so it's important to choose the university that is the best fit for you.

If you have any questions about general university life, please let me know. Best of luck with your studies :smile:

Hello,

There are plenty of part-time job opportunities in Surrey, both on the University campus and externally. If you're interested in working on campus, you might consider becoming a student ambassador, where you'll have the chance to work on open days, with the marketing team, or in schools. Research assistant roles are also available, as are peer mentoring positions. I am also a Peer Supporter Online who is there for students via Instagram, email or video chat :smile:

Of course, there are also plenty of typical jobs available, like working in a coffee shop, both on and off campus.

If you need help finding a job, our university has a fantastic employability and careers team that can help you with your search. You can find more information about them on our website here:https://www.surrey.ac.uk/employability-and-careers

Best of luck!

Hi there

Deciding which uni to firm and insure isn't easy but I would highly recommend making a pros and cons list. When I was deciding which uni I wanted to go to I made a list of all the factors that were important to me such as distance from home, student ratings, transport links e.g. nearest train station, facilities, career prospects, social life etc. I also read through both course structures in detail to see which one interested me the most. I would advise attending offer holder open days if you haven't already in order to get a better insight into which uni you could see yourself living in. Make sure to also look around the city/town as it is likely that you will live there in your second and third year so you want to make sure its easily accessibly to where your lectures will be held. Good luck with your decision!

Best wishes
