Choosing a university for computer science

I am an International Student and I have applied to University of Manchester, University of Southampton, University of Glasgow, University of Nottingham and Queen Mary University of London and I have offer from QMUL, University of Nottingham and University of Glasgow for Computer Science(UG).

I am not sure which uni should i choose to study comp sci. in, I have watched all sort of vlogs and tours and I still can't decide which uni should i go for though I have heard that comp sci of QMUL is not very respected and that uni is better for Law but other than that i can't decide which uni has the best computer science department as different sites gives different rankings to these universities and it is confusing me more.

I'd appreciate any help that i can get.

I would recommend first two in same order in your list. Living cost in Southampton could be slightly lesser than Manchester though. Manchester is bit higher in terms of its reputation but Southampton has gone up very in ranking and is also a well reputed Uni. So it's your choice. If you want to live a good city life , go for Manchester. If want a peaceful atmosphere then Southampton. Don't know about other three Uni much

Out of all of those, Manchester is way better in terms of prospects course and reputation for cs, it’s also a semi target uni for finance which would be an option with a cs degee. The city is big and safe and has nice social/night life if that’s your thing. Out of all of those Manchester is a no brainer at least for cs
