I am looking for a university at the moment and I have no idea where to start.

I am mainly looking for a uni in any English-speaking country, preferably outside the UK. I am going to pursue a degree in Computer Science. As far as I know teachers are the main criteria of how good is the specific course or uni, but what else should I look at? Do modules change in different universities or are they basically the same? Are there any universities specialising just on Computer Science?

Mafia Don, you should make a decision grid based on a short list of universities. See FAQ 25.
And there are other relevant FAQ links in this forum's FAQs. Back out to the forum main page, and look for the FAQ link at upper right.
