    There's no correct answer to your question.

    What do you want to do with the rest of your life? There's money to be made in data mining but it's not very exciting for example.

    Consider seriously whether or not a Msc will actually further your career in the way you expect. In the long run on the job experience is worth more unless you intend to be a manager or an academic.

    MSc Web Technology - southampton - Good course. However, try get on a computer science / computing / programming course. It is a benefit.

    Personally I would go for a MSc in Advanced Computer Science. CS seems to be the front-running course to go for industry and if you can get onto an MSc course in it then more power to you.

    BUT!

    If you have that many choices I would seriously look at why you feel the need to go for a MSc if you don't know exactly what you want to do. Go to an open day and talk to a lecturer at a university you wish to go to. You'll find that lecturers are a lot nicer to postgraduate students than they are with undergraduates.
