    Manchester is notoriously bad in terms of teaching as they are very focused on research and research alone. They have a good reputation worldwide but not in England so if you want to live and work here I suggest that you choose Bristol..

    Bristol has probably one of the best reputations for Aerospace of any UK Uni.
    The city is also home to many aero-engineering and defence engineering companies, with links to the University.

    I remember taking a tour of Bristol's Aerospace department, it was like basically taking a tour of Airbus. The tour guide stated that 3rd and 4th year projects are done with the supervision of senior staff at Airbus. They also have very strong links with BAE systems, Rolls-Royce, GE Aviation, Agusta-Westland, to name a few, as they are all based near Bristol. Arguably Bristol is the place to be to study Aerospace Engineering.
