    Hello,Which university I see better out of the two?FOR ENGINEERING.

    In terms of:

    1)respect
    2)quality go eductaion
    3)location
    4)Accomodation
    5)COMPETITION FOR ENGINEERING COURSES

    And anything else.

    Also,at Cambridge there is just one engineering for use which you can do but there are many many specialisation option later on in that one course...

    However I'm my understanding at imperial you have to pick a course with a specialisation from the start,is this correct?

    Is so,does that require you to decide what branch of engineering you want to do for the rest of you career?

    Also,which one is more ovmetitve and he vomeptive is imperial,from my understanding it is fairly ofmetitve but not as much as Cambridge or oxford...

    Any other info will be useful...

    Thanks.

    1) Cambridge
    2) probably identical
    3) depends whether you like a bustling city, or a quite one
    4) Cambridge, as it's very cheap and good value for money
    5)I think Imperial has more applicants per place , but not by too much of a margin.

    Can't you just apply to both?
