    Hello ! I am completely stuck on what uni to put down or my 5 choices, I know its between a 7 of Bristol, Bath, Southampton, Surrey, Nottingham, Glasgow and Queens. AS Levels I got 4 A's and I am predicted A*A*A.....

    But Bristol and Bath who have very high reputations for Aerospace are leading the line for me. So I want to put one of the 2 down.

    Bristol offers
    Aerospace Engineering with Study in Continental Europe (H401)

    While Bath offers: MEng (Hons) Aerospace Engineering Five years with placement (H423)

    I'm unsure as to which one to put down as i dont know if the study abroad is better than placement or what?

    Well for Bristol you can do a year in industry as well, even if it's not advertised.

    As for which one's better that's completely up to you.

    Are you sure the Bath option doesnt include a year abroad as well? Awfully strange if it didn't considering Uni of Hertforshire has it on their Aerospace Eng course and they are..well..lesser caliber.

    I want a year in industry if possible.

    An actual placement is "better" in terms of job prospects as it gives you actual engineering experience. I haven't seen much evidence so far that employers are particularly interested in whether you did or did not study abroad for a year, although if it's something you want to do, certainly do it.

    Although I don't see why both could not be fitted into a degree programme.
