which one do you have the most interest in? which ones have modules which you'll have interest in.which uni has offered you these courses, how good are the uni/courses according to the university guides (not just the one, read through all of them, they have differing opinions)important thing is employability.f*ck everything else cos if you're going to uni for any other reason other than a future job or to better your education, leave the system now and get a job.the x amount of debt your going to pick up isn't worth the midweek raves at the suquick edit;lol i strayed off the subject a bit, but just find out the modules and which ones u think you'll like basically. but definately look at employability. try searching up graduate programmes and what sorta degrees they might be after.and if you're indifferent to either one, choose the easiest one tbh.a 1st in management is better than a 2:2 in physics imho

this tbhlook at what skills you will learn in 3rd and 4th year and what jobs you can get with themyou need to work out what the most important part of your degree is, skills wise, and make sure you are a f*ck*ng DON with that skill so you can get a job

the word sounds coolerbut if you think about what they'd teach in the course it seems verrry boringhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_forensicsand you'd probably end up working for the feds or a data recovery company - or possibly a data recovery post in a big computer companyNetwork Engineering seems like something you're more likely to get employed from. Although you'd probably earn more in Computer Forensics.They both seem very boring tbh but if you're into that stuff then go for it.

In an ideal world employability (is this even a word? as it goes bouncebackability is so f*ck the oxford dictionary) wouldn't even be a factor. It would just be about enjoying a subject so much that you excel in it and then because of that finding a job would be easy. The problem is now as everyone knows getting a job is stupidly hard so there are alot more things to consider like ZaK mentioned. At the end of the day though you work too many hours to not enjoy what you're doing so how much you enjoy the subject would be the biggest factor for me.

I do Computer Science and I would say telecomms & networking has a higher pay salary especially if you go into managerial position, theres also more job positions within this sector, however the people in them courses generally tend to be over geeky and unsociablecomputer forensic do most the stuff we do, but instead of the interaction design side, they do the legal & law sides of computer policies etc...the jobs tend to be working for the police, data recovery firms or working on the analysis side of implementing new security features for computer technology
