Hi @shayan.asif786.

Congratulations:clap2: on your offers!

Kingston is a great university to study at. The university was recently awarded TEF Gold for its outstanding student experience and outcomes. Also, its Data Science MSc course is accredited by the British Computer Society (BCS) and the Chartered Institute for IT.

As a current student at Kingston University, I can say that there are a number of facilities to support you with employment and practical skills development. The University has a Career and Employability Service which assists students with advice on job searches and career options. It also runs career fairs to help you meet prospective employers and enhance your employability skills.

Additionally, Kingston's location in London is an advantage. It opens up endless opportunities for internships, networking events, and career prospects in the thriving data scene.

Ultimately, choosing between schools is about finding the right fit for you and your goals. I would recommend chatting with any of our current students via this link for more insights and to find out if Kingston is the right fit for you. If you have any more questions, please do not hesitate to reach out.

Wishing you all the best!
