Hello, I am currently a grade 12 student in the International Baccalaureate program. I want to go study aeronautical/aerospace engineering in higher education in the future and have been considering not only Imperial College London, but also University of Michigan and even TU Delft. But, Imperial College London would be my first choice if I get in.
My first question is: TU Delft is largely unknown in the place I live in but upon some research, it looks like a good university. Does it actually have a similar level of reputation as Imperial College London? Do you think it will be worth going? Second, my current grades so far are...
Higher Levels : Economics 6 Physics 6 Chemistry 7 Math 7 Standard Levels: English 7 Chinese 6 I think my English grade will probably fall to 6, but I think I may be able to bring Physics or Economics up to 7 by September or October.
If so, do you think I'll have a good chance of getting accepted at Imperial? I don't have that much extracurricular activities that I did that are much related to aeronautical engineering, which worries me lots, because so far all the personal statements I have read have included relevant work experiences.
Thanks for your help!

Hi there 😃

It's great to see you're already planning your future in higher education, and on such an exciting career path. Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering are fantastic courses to enrol on, with some brilliant opportunities for progression!

Coventry University's Engineering department also boasts an incredible £55 million faculty building, with fantastic facilities such as a Harrier Jump Jet, working wind tunnel and multiple flight simulators, all used by students during their degree studies. However, your studies won't just take part on campus. Our courses also offer fantastic work experience opportunities as well, and our No Hidden Extra's policy will ensure you have everything you need to complete your studies.
