    Hey guys !

    I just wanted to know your opinion about which uni is best to study aerospace engineering
    as I have offers from Coventry and Kingston.
    I would personally choose Coventry but I just wanted some more opinions before making the choice

    I think the pros about Coventry are that they have recently built a new faculty which seems very modern and they also have a Harrier jet, flight simulators and wind tunnels as the main facilities for aerospace. Also, I think the reputation is a bit higher and both the uni and the course are ranked higher than kingston.
    Also, the uni stats seem better in general and I just think the staff is somehow more "reputable" as for example, most 1st year engineering courses use this maths book by this professor at uni! (Glyn James)

    Cons
    I think the city of Coventry might be less enjoyable in general, Kingston seems a nicer town to be honest ?
    Another thing that I wanted to point out is the fact I've seen in the stats is that there are no exams in the second year? That looks a bit dodgy I don't know
    I have noticed as they say on their website that they don't use the workshops for machinery and lathes ? ( only for mechanical and motorsport courses) and it doesn't say anything about the metals or metrology ones

    Pros about Kingston ?

    As far as I have seen in the video it seems to me there is a more variety of broader labs and workshops?
    I don't really know about the teaching staff on the other side

    I actually didn't mean to make this so long but that was just the reseach I've been doing

    If you really read this any opinions would be very welcome thank you all so much!

    The one you got selected first before the other is usually the one you will have to go to in the end, because the UCAS assumes the order you put the universities in is the order in which your favoritism lies. You only can change by phoning the university itself and give the university itself a reason why you don't want to go to the first one on the list after giving an offer, I think you can cancel before results day not sure about it because it allows the university to use your space for someone else.
