    so i have a few questions run through my head as i finish my UCAS application for Mechanical Engineering

    is it worth applying for MEng when I understand you can switch in your 2nd year from BEng which some uni's offer as a lower entry requirement?

    how do professional placements work, i cant make it clear from prospectus' and uni websites if you can do a placement year if you organise it or do they have to specifically allow for this in the course?

    MEngs typically have a higher entry requirement but they guarantee that you will be able to obtain a Masters if you choose it on entry (assuming you pass all your required modules).

    It is rare but those applying for the BEng course may not be able to do the additional Masters year if there is insufficient space i.e. the course is oversubscribed.

    Your placement normally happens either before you go to the first year of uni (gap year) or between your second and third for BEng and between third and fourth for MEng.
