Cambridge if you don't mind doing General Eng in the first two years.

Otherwise I recommend Surrey. Excellent EE department there.

Nice too. But these are huge metropolitan universities whereas Surrey is smaller and not situated in a big city. Wanted to add some variety instead of just saying "Oh, go to Imperial" or "Go to UCL."

And arguably some of the work being done at Surrey in EE (e.g. satellites) has no comparison in the whole of Europe!

When I think EE, the universities that spring to mind are Southampton, Cambridge, York, Edinburgh, Loughborough and Sheffield.

People always forget that EE at Surrey is 5* rated and has been for a long time :rolleyes:

They are also great for CS too!!! I think there is a correlation between CS and EE departments!!!

If I were applying for EE with perfect grades etc... then my 6 would definitely be....Cambridge, Southampton, Edinburgh, Surrey, Sheffield and Manchester.

Funnily enough Imperial isn't a 5* in this area (nor is UCL)

Perhaps you are not familiar with my aversion to studying in London. I admit that I will almost certainly be forced to work there at some point in the future but I'll be damned if I'm going to study there!!! Shame really, IC would have looked pretty nice on my CV. Also I think UCL has a better mech eng department that their EE one. Not sure about IC's EE department (although I'm sure its pretty sweet).

Well we can't be perfect at everything *sweeps shortcomings under the Imperial motifed carpet*

Leekey, as shiny said Imperial's EE dept only score a 5, yet they still ask for AAA, as opposed to AAB for my course. Must be all those uber clever malaysian students coming in...

Hmm, better get back to P4

well for an oversea student (like me)

you pay so much to study oversea and you are basically looking for a good school, since you don't want to pay approximately the same for a worse university (talking about international reputation)

however, living and working is another issue that I will need to think about since I do not want to spend 3-4 years in a place I do not like : /

Actually it maybe easier to get scholarship if I have perfect grades and apply to a university that's not in the Russell Group : )
