I'm struggling to decide what university courses should take.
The a levels I'm taking are Maths, Art, Physics & Textiles.
Predicted grades are around ABB +
I can't decide between these courses,
architecture, physics, mechanical engineering, product design and manufacture, architectural engineering and design management, product design and technology, materials engineering, product design engineering
Deciding to apply to Nottingham, Loughborough, UCl, Sheffield..
Would like to,do a course where some sort of design is involved and not based on 100% on exams.
Any advice to choose which course is the most suitable for me?

Where would you like be in 10 years time? What projects would you like to be doing and what sorts of roles would you like to be working in?

When you say "design", what does that mean to you?



Most of the courses you've mentioned, although I'm not sure about physics or architecture as I never considered studying them, should have a reasonable amount of coursework or other practical elements. Things with "engineering" in the title will typically have more maths elements. "Design" will naturally have more focus on drawings and visual elements.

It seems odd to decide on your university first and course second. Most people decide what they want to study first and then look at which unis offering that course they like best.
