Default Degree course help.

Hello, I currently live in the UK and am looking to pursue a career in the games industry, more specifically as a game programmer. I've been looking up degree courses, but need some advice. Is it wise to go for a specific game degree, such as 'computer games programming' offered at Teeside, or 'games programming' at Northumbria, or will I be better suited by getting a degree in computer science?

Also, will degrees such as 'Computer Science with Games Technology', offered at City University London, or 'Computer Science (game engineering)', offered at Newcastle, better prepare me for a career in the games industry?

Basically, the question I'm hoping can be answered is: 'What degree course is best in order to become a games programmer, and get a job in respectable companies?

Thanks very much for any help in advance. Hopefully I've posted this in the right section...
