Deciding between computing degrees
So I'm going to uni after a gap year, and ive got the choice between quite a few computing subjects.
they are the ones which stand out
heres a link to one of them if anyone wants to find the others.
anyone got experience and can help this decision

All of these will fuck you sideways if you haven't got previous experience(I don't think you do, could be wrong, though).
Computer Security is a niche and finding a job is exceedingly hard. But when you do, it's normally really fucking good.
Just go compsci. Safest route. Also start learning right now - don't wait 'til you get to uni. Terrible idea. Loads of people do it and it fucks them entirely.

I'd be more than happy to tutor you over Skype or something. Just let me know what you're interested in and I'll get some stuff ready.

I'd go with one of the first two simply because you can probably get a job in computer security just with those.

computer engineering(CE) is what i went thru. i got 3 years into it and i started to realize that i didn't want to type a fuck ton of code for hours. it was crazy heavy in math. i loved it all, but all the jobs i found were heavily programming based. i'm a hands on person and i'd rather go into IT/networking cause it's got the shit i wanna do. it'll have programming but not an assload of it.
comp sci is good too, still loads of math and programming. lots of exploration into algorithms though. had a project where i had to make my own encryption system based off of RSA first day, nearly died but i was a happy go lucky faggot and thought i could do it. passed it though.
computer security will kick your ass. but if you can get a job at it (like sky said) you're golden.
