I'd learn to spell "engineering" before I applied if I were you. It'll increase you chances significantly.
Yeah, i had to do that! Took a while tho.

Please remember to correctly spell the name of the University you're applying to as well.

Hey, I'm applying for aeronautical engineering/ mechanical engineering. At the moment my five is looking like this:

1. Southampton
2. Manchester
3. Liverpool
4. Brunnel
5. ?

Not sure about the last one, my AS results weren't great (Just incase your wondering why I haven't put 5 top ones) but I'm pretty confident about getting 3 As at the end of the year. I haven't put Imperial because I don't want to stay in London. So any opinions?

I wish. I said my ASs weren't great. So Oxford/Cambridge (and arguably a lot of others) definitely a waste of an application space.

Newcastle (redbrick in a vibrant, student city)

Nottingham (great looking campus)

Leeds (typical redbrick)

Durham (great uni and as strong in engineering as they are in the arts they are usually associated with, is a small city though which may not appeal).

First of all, Brunel isn't crap.

It's quite strong in engineering (it's named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, an indication that engineering is closely linked to it history).

Finally, it's not really in London. It's on the outskirts of London, quite suburban. The OP probably meant unis in the very centre of London.

is there a person here with an oxbridge offer who is going to choose imperial (or has chosen) for any type of engineering.
I know that chemical_scum did. He's goin Imperial now to do EEE.

There were a few people this year who declined oxbridge offers, check in the Imperial forum who they were.

ILIGAN is going to have a field day with the above... I suppose it will qualify for some kind of Imperial bias for having a good memory. He should really join Labour.

Master Polhem, Oxbridge are more prestigious than Imperial is. Please deal with that fact and stop attacking me on a personal level.

I think I wont, Cambridge is on par, but that is about it. Seeing as I know quite a few engineers at both and am very familiar with their academic system I am going, like everyone else, challenge you on everything you say because you have nothing to back it up with. You are an American speculating wildly on British HE and I even got positive reputation from a few people for telling you to stop posting on issues you have no knowledge of.

Stop please.

So here is my consensus:

For engineering in the UK the top two schools are Cambridge and Imperial. One is highly specialised the other not. If we want to really get down to dirty business and look at a non biased league table look at the ARWU one for engineering. I think it is complete crap but I know that you are fond of crap but there you will find Imperial second after Cambridge for engineering.

Cambridge has the edge on some disciplines and Imperial on others, big debate about which.

(you are attacking me on a personal level by negating the whole field of engineering with your misinformation)

You're not only ignorant -- you're lazy as well. Ok here are the rankings; eat them!

I could not even see a subject where Imperial is ranked higher than Cambridge, NOT even a single subject!!

Master Polhem, I beg you to STOP fooling yourself or you will further humiliate yourself in this message board.
