I am a Y12 student about to go through the university application process

I'm open to looking at different UNi courses besides the 2 I'm currently eyeing up (chemical engineering and aerospace engineering). I just want to know what other ccourses should I be looking at which you think may interest me. I am doing chemistry physics maths and biology. i have a very strong interest in maths and physics and the subject I'm least interested in is biology.
If anybody can come up with any suggestions it'll be greatly appreciated

Read this : http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki...sing_a_subject

Then look at www.whatuni.com and look at the vast range of Engineering courses you could do, and check out the courses in detail on each Uni website.
Other areas to look at - Environmental Science, Geology, Oceanography, Meteorology or an Allied Health Studies subject - http://www.nhscareers.nhs.uk/explore-by-career/.

Is it interesting? I've looked at physics and mathmatical physics but I mainly want to do something that is real life applicable like engineering

Worth reading - http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/wiki/Engineering_degree

Geology, geophysics, chemical physics, astrophysics etc.

Geology graduates can enter into the oil and gas industry.

I haven't personally done it, I'm hopefully starting a Geology degree in September but i know Geophysics looked interesting and had great job opportunities and career prospects. I couldn't do geophysics because i'm not doing maths A-level (did it for AS) otherwise i probably would have done geophysics instead.
I think it fits in with the real life thing as it involves looking at whats beneath our feet under the sea and many other things, I recommend it's worth a look but end of the day go for what feels right for you!
