    Hey, i'm currently in year 12 and I am looking to have a career in the aviation industry. Ive seen a couple of degree's such as 'Air Transport Management' at Loughborough,!'Aviation Management' at Coventry, 'Air Transport and Logistics' at Huddersfield and 'Airline and Airport Management' at Bucks New. Does anyone else know if there are any other aviation degree's available, or even if there are any degree's which would be very beneficial to enter the aviation industry, such as business management etc, as i'm not sure whether there are other degree's which aren't directly related to Aviation, but will still be helpful. Thank you!

    Depends which area of the aviation industry you want to go into, there's also Aerospace or Aeronautical engineering and then for piloting there are a handful of degrees which will get you close to an ATPL.


    I applied to loughborough to do Aero Eng I actually wanted to become a pilot but my family can't even afford a tenth of the cost, so I figured that doing a degree in aero eng and then become a pilot in my own spare time later on would benefit me better and I would reccommend it to you too - at least it'd give you a backup option that way

    But anyway, for what you're looking for, I visited

    - Leeds and they do an aviation technology degree, the facilities were very good for what I saw. https://engineering.leeds.ac.uk/cour...-pilot-studies

    - I visited Sheffield and I believe they do an aero eng course with private pilot studies, they have amazing facilities.

    Check them both out on an open day if you can

    Hi benj1999 - that's a good idea there from @tripleseven to visit universities on Open Days. We can tell you that the next one at Huddersfield is in September http://www.hud.ac.uk/open-days/. If you've got any questions about the course offered here in the Business School just let us know, we're happy to help
