Applied for and put Aeronautical at Lboro as my first choice and Aerospace at Liverpool as my reserve.

Is the difference between the two courses (Aeronautical and Aerospace - not referring to the Uni specific courses) significant? I mean, for example, I hear many students completing Aerospace degrees go on to work in F1 racing; would this still be viable for someone with an Aeronautical degree?

At a technical level, I think the only difference is that "aerospace" extends beyond the atmosphere, and "aeronautical" stays within it.

I've heard that both courses are fairly identical though.



So yeah, either should suffice. I looked at the course structure on the website, and they're basically the same.

There is no difference whatsoever at my uni. My course had its name changed from aeronautical to aerospace but the content stayed the same. The only thing I recollect was that the space module became a compulsory unit as opposed to remaining optional, but this may be unconnected to the name change.
