    Bristol. Bath is a great university but their aerospace course is crap. For first two years you learn nothing about aeroplanes/aerospace, so by the time they teach you what a wing is in year 3, you could be doing advanced aerodynamics at Bristol. Bristol also has a space systems course in year 2 which looks interesting but Bath's aerospace course is too dry.

    Oh really!? But other than tthat, can you inspire me in another perspective like the overview of the university please? I am afraid that I am quite under-knowledged...

    In you point of view, what is it like to study in Bristol? Do you like her? Or what makes she special for you ?

    Yes, I like studying at Bristol - the course is challenging but rewarding and most of my lecturers are really passionate about their work and are really helpful when you email them questions about the work

    The city itself is great, it's not that big but it's the perfect size - everything you need is walking distance but there's a lot of places i.e. restaurants, bars, pubs and clubs to go to! The area the university is in is also really nice (Clifton)

    The difference in prestige between Bristol and Bath is negligible, as long as you get a 2.1 or first from either you will open a lot of doors career-wise. But if you like clubbing/going to bars then Bristol is definitely a better city

    I knew 3 people who did aeronautical engineering at Bristol - two failed their first year. It's a very tough course and doesn't appear to have very high student satisfaction rates. But as long as you are prepared to be self motivated and really get your head down and work hard I imagine you'll be fine.

    Hi there it's me again. I've been quite concerned with the placement program of the two university. Do you have any insight on how does the university provides/ aides you in having internships?

    You dont need help from universities to get internships. The best they can do is tell you which internships are available/career fairs, which I'm sure both uni do. You will get endless emails about internships opportunities as they come. Its down to the individual as to whether you apply for it or not, or whether you pass the interviews and what time you apply. You can independently look for and apply to internships. I will not use internship as a basis to pick either one of them.
