Hi there

i also had a offer on aerospace from Nottingham, but i had to choose between Nottingham and loughborough, hopefully you know Nottingham actually start doing aerospace last year so it's a pretty new subject for them, Bristol will definitely be a way better choice for you in my opinion.

I'm still undecided, although i prefer Nottingham's city. What was your offer? I was aware that the course is new there but since it already has a high reputation for engineering, i didn't think it'd matter. Out of curiosity, where are you planning on going to? I had to decide between Loughborough and Nottingham. xD

I will be going to Loughborough, although i know that Nottingham campus is better than loughborough's but i also love sport so i consider loughborough to be a better choice for me. Nottingham world ranking is way better than Loughborough as well, 75 v 236.

I'd say go for Bristol, their aero course is well established whereas Notts' is fairly new which is a bit of a red flag because the highly interdisciplinary nature of aerospace brings a lot of teething problems. You also have more engineering companies on your doorstep at Bristol compared to Notts.

Even if it is new, Nottingham still has a good reputation for engineering. Nottingham also offers an industrial year whereas Bristol doesn't.

You can go on a year in industry without your university offering it. It just means that it won't count towards your degree, you won't have to do the extra stuff unis ask YINI students to do, and you don't get the normal support from your uni during that time. But you still get the year of experience which is the main point of doing it in the first place.

Hey Baptins

Before you finally decide just go to Nottingham uni and talk to the current students. Have you done that already?

I wasn't sure on how to do that so I haven't.

If you're talking about aero students specifically then it's probably not worth the effort, there's only a small handful of them and they haven't even completed first year yet. Plus there will likely be a lot of changes between their year and his.
