    So I'm gunna be heading to the University of Glasgow in September 2017 and I was wondering if anyone could advise on what the course is like and how intense it is. I'm still in two minds about studying aero engineering or mathematics as I have disabilities and my minds playing on the stereotype that an engineering degree requires more mobility and physical hands-on lab work. Is the engineering course ideal for someone who is quite sedentary? And what are the facilities like for both schools? (A lot of questions, I know. But any info would be good)

    Ask the uni about supporting someone with disabilities. They wouldn't have taken you on the course if they didn't think you could keep up for any reason. The course will be intense as with any STEM or lab based course. Can you visit? See if the unis can put you in touch with current or former students.

    Current fourth year aero student here. The course in first 2 years if not that intensive but they've now got a common first and second year so generally big classes with a lot of support. Common courses mean that you'll study maths and other subjects with civils, EEE, mech's etc. As far as my four years has went I've had to build one thing and that was a basic hinge joint in first year which is basic. So shouldn't have any problems there. Most labs are fine as there are at least 2/3 demonstrators available + usually in groups. 3rd year is pretty intense and fourth year as well. The most difficult of all engineering disciplines and worthwhile doing.
