    What sort of experience could you possibly get? Correct me if i'm wrong but i don't think work experience is a necessity for this course.

    You really don't need work experience for degrees other than medicine (correct me if I'm wrong).

    You don't need any sort of work experience to get into an engineering degree, so just apply anyway.

    Hi there,

    I didn't have any relevant work experience, i didn't go to any taster days, open days, nothing. I didn't even do any engineering lessons in school (just Maths/Physics etc.). I still received 5 offers though, so don't worry about it, you should be just fine.

    You can barely get work experience at this age for engineering unless you are really lucky anyways , so don't worry about it

    so in your personal statemnet what did you write about because i have nothing related to engineering i can even talk about?
    I did do 1 week work experience at a hospital but cant really link that into engineering

    I talked about what i've read, what i've seen in the news, in articles etc. the things that got me interested in the aerospace aspect of it. Fortunately i had done an investigation on Aerospace in Wales and France for my Welsh Baccalaureate, so i commented on that. I mentioned about Physics and the certain parts of the course which i enjoy most.
