    Offers from University of Sheffield, University of Strathclyde and Swansea University. My major is aerospace engineering (Master of Science)
    Please help me to make right decision.

    I would go for Strathclyde. Got a good reputation for Engineering and great links with Industry.

    I cant speak for the other two cities but having lived in Glasgow for 22 years I can safely say it is a great place to live as a student.

    Sheffield doesn't have an aerospace engineering MSc. It has an undergraduate MEng Aerospace course and it has MScs in Aerospace materials, and Aerodynamics and Aerostructures but not in Aerospace Engineering.

    That said it has the best research and industry links compared to the other two by a good margin alongside being one of the top engineering schools generally and with the most modern facilities. If you're talking about the MEng course it is very intensive and gives you a lot of options as it's quite general, so you're not just limited to having an aerospace degree as you have a formal specialism of mechanical, materials, electrical or systems engineering and so it's a bit more realistic to go into those careers. If you're talking about MSc Aerospace Materials we're one of the few universities with a dedicated Materials department so you'll get a bit more support and it's also very close knit so it will be easier to network via the university.

    Potential downside is that postgraduate courses at Sheffield are very international dominated, although whether that's a downside depends on the person. For undergrad courses there aren't as many international students but still quite a lot, it's a very multicultural university.
