    Hi everybody!
    I'm an egyptian high school student who is considering to study Engineering in the UK. However, I'm having hard time to decide which universities should I choose. I'm considering Aerospace engineering, and on my UCAS application I've put Cambridge, Oxford and Imperial College. But I'm unable to decide what plan B universities should I choose. Each one has its pros and cons. I really like Manchester, the city and the university, and it has the highest ranking on QS and Time but lower on the guardian. Bristol is also good and in the fourth year your project is assessed by airbus, and it has the highest ranking on the guardian. On the other hand Sheffield has the highest amount of scholarships offered to international students and it has excellent connections with airbus, boeing and Rolls-Royce. But Sheffield has the lowest ranking on qs, time and the guardian. Manchester hasn't stated any information about connections with companies. Hence now my head is really messed up.:confused:
    If anyone knows why should I pick any of the universities instead of another then please help me. If anyone has a certain privilege over the other (e.g scholarships, prestige, labs, industrial connections,etc.) then please point them out. Also do the rankings deserve that I should follow them up or not?
    Thanks in advance:rolleyes:

    Cambridge does have aerospace, you apply for engineering then you specialize during the third and fourth year in aerospace (check the modules). Oxford doesn't have aerospace but it is the only university which offers full scholarships for international students.
