Choice between Warwick or KCL for computer science

I'm currently undecided about whether choosing KCL or Warwick as my firm choice. I am an international student having a conditional offer to both unis, KCL usually has better international reputation, and it is in London (which is where I hope to get a job at after graduating). However, from what I have heard from friends is that the CS course at KCL is overhyped by international students and that Warwick has a better teaching quality. Thus, from job prospective and teaching qualities, which uni would be better to choose as my firm choice?
Thanks in advance.
There will be no difference in job prospects between them.

The teaching is equally horrible in both unis - with Warwick being at 64% student satisfaction for CS and King's being at 74%.

You can get a job in London with either.

Warwick would actually be the stronger prospect for roles in investment banking/management consulting etc, as it's a target uni and KCL isn't.

Personally I think it has a stronger CS department as well by a fair margin.

Yes, true, Warwick would be get better for high finance.

And their CS dept is definitely better and probably fighting for 5th in the country with Bath, Durham, etc while KCL arguably isn't even top 10.

However in terms of teaching Warwick seems to have shot down in CS student satisfaction rankings and I'm not sure there's much of a difference in job prospects for tech jobs.
