    Hello,

    Does anyone know of any Space-oriented aerospace courses that accept BTEC Engineering without A-level?

    I've applied to Hertfordshire, Kingston and Southampton (Beng, hoping to switch to the MENG whilst studying there).
    I've also applied to a similiar course and Hertfordshire's master's program.
    I have until tomorrow before my application is sent off by the college, so there is still time to swap out the duplicate Hertfordshire application for another university that may accept me.
    I'm expecting a distinction in both Math & Further math, with an outcome along the lines of D*DD or D*D*D.

    Did I miss any?

    Look up space systems engineering. It's a masters program though, it's very niche, your best bet would be to go for an Aeronautical/Astronautical undergrad degree (for example, like the course at southampton) and then go from there. I'm unsure what qualifications they accept though.

    The funding for a postgraduate concerns me, otherwise something like this would be optimal.

    Hello! There are a few people at my school that would like to do the same as well - as well as myself as I would love to do spacecraft enginering! There is no harm in just going for Aersopace from the start because the whole point of the course is to involve space oriented aircrafts instead of just aviation. I've also applied to Southampton for Aeronautics and Astronautics with Spacecreaft Engineering, but in theory, the is very very similar to Aeropace but just called somthing different.

    I've seen some courses for "Aerospace" offer only aeronautics based modules, hence the question.
    It seems not all Aerospace courses are actually aerospace.
