    Hello, this is my first thread/post so I don't know if i'm doing it correctly, HOWEVER


    I was wondering if anyone can recommend any good universities for mechanical engineering, I'm expecting AAB-ABB and I've had a look at a few (i.e. Cardiff, Oxford Brookes, UCL, Kingston)

    Just wondering if anyone has anything to say about them, or others

    Strathy have sent out AAA AH offers for MEng, not sure how that would translate to A-level. I can't imagine the conditions being set lower next year.

    The universities I have applied to are: Warwick, Nottingham, Sussex, Lancaster, Leicester. (In that order of preference).
    My two favorite by a long way are Warwick and Nottingham, in comparison to all the other universities I just believe they are in a league of their own. The facilities and academic staff are fantastic and the campus is brilliant. Both the universities have very strong research going on and also have around the same number of students. They are both campus universities, so if you like campus universities, you will love Warwick and Nottingham.

    There's always Hull, despite the low entry requirements it's actually a pretty decent course here.

    I applied to a uni with lesser entry standards so I was guarenteed a place no matter what. Then I had the freedom to put higher unis on my application knowing that I still had Exeter.
    :cool:
    But do you have any interest in going to Exeter?

    So that they don't have to take a year out if they miss their offers.

    May I ask how is the teaching quality in Warwick? I have been to warwick a few days ago. I like its facilities very much but I'm struggling with which uni to choose for mechanical engineering. Warwick or Bristol. Birtsol obviously has a higher reputation on engineering than Warwick.
