    Hey guys!

    So I didn't get the grades for my firm choice but i did manage to get them for my insurance choice (Plymouth) however I was not sure if i wanted to go there for sure so I called up a few unis and got clearing offers from swansea and coventry.
    So i assume if I were to chose either of those 2 I would have to call plymouth and ask them to release me from my contract right?

    currently on Ucas Plymouth comes up as (Uncoditional offer)(firmly accepted)) and what im wondering is which Uni I should go for to have the best engineering opportunities in the future.

    Thx

    Hi,

    You will indeed need to ask to be released if you wish to take either of their offers.

    That being said have you considered Aston? A number of our Engineering students take placement years with JLR, Rolls Royce and IBM to name a few companies.

    We are also ranked second in the UK for teaching quality.

    Hi,

    well done in getting into Plymouth. Yes you would have to contact Plymouth in order to me released so you could apply through clearing.

    If you are still looking for unis Kingston may be for you! Here is a link to our engineering course available through clearing http://www.kingston.ac.uk/undergradu...ng-foundation/ and our hotline number is

    I hope it all goes well for you

    Hello

    Looks like you've got an answer to your question! When deciding between universities make sure you have a look at the course content and also what current students have to say about the university. You can find a lot of this on our websites.

    Just to let you know that we are holding Open Days at our new campus everyday from today until Wednesday from 11-4. During these times you'll be able to speak to academics and current students as well as having a tour of the facilities.

    You can find our more about Mechanical Engineering at Swansea here http://www.swansea.ac.uk/engineering/mechanical/

    If you need anything else please give us a ring on 01792 295514.

    Thank you
    Tamsyn
