    I'm a sixth former (in my final year of A-level) and i have had an interest in aerospace engineering. But most unis also include physics as part of the entry requirement, which I don't do.

    I'm currently doing A2 Maths(including M1), A2 Chemistry and A2 Biology.
    Would these be enough for me to get into aero Eng?

    Not possible. It's almost like applying for a physics degree without physics.

    You definitely need Maths and physics. Have you thought about doing any foundation years?

    Yh, some unis during the open days actually said that they could offer foundation year to people who haven't done physics.
    But those were only from 2 unis (so far)

    Yeah I think that's probably your best bet

    This is an interesting post for me actually.

    I am starting a Science, Technology and Maths Access course before I get onto a batchelors in Engineering.

    I eventually want to go on to do a Masters in Aerospace Engineering or Robotics.

    Should I add extra physics to my learning?

    You could have physics content in your science and maths classes of your access course, some universities, including Liverpool university, state on their entry requirements for Aerospace Engineering BEng, that if you haven't studied A level Physics, that studying M1 and M2 of the Maths A level is enough physics

    I think it would be worth contacting the universities you are interested in applying to directly

    Thanks.

    I'll be sure to bare that in mind.

    Im just doing a general engineering degree. its not in aerospace engineering. I'll go on to do a Masters in it afterwards.

    Most general engineering degrees start broad but then allow you to specialise in later years.

    Yeah, that is the plan. get the general engineering degree, then go on to do a masters. Im currently interested in Aerospace but, that might change by the time I've finished my general engineering degree.

    Lets see how it goes aye.
