Hi,
I've conditional offers for mechanical engineering at the Strathclyde engineering academy for the foundation enhanced HNC and also for RGU into the degree programme. I'm really struggling to pick a first choice. I really liked RGU when I went and liked the uni, structure of course etc and also the fact your already into the degree programme, whereas the engineering g academy is a foundation year before going into the degree programme.
I don't know too much about the engineering academy, or have any experiences from those who have gone this route. I am more inclined towards RGU but would really like to study in Glasgow and do wonder if Strathclyde uni is the better option between the two.
I've got to make a choice soon!
Anyone in a similar position, or been down this route that an impart some wisdom?!
Cheers

I have many students in my year and also in the year above me who have come from the engineering academy. They skip 1st year and go straight into 2nd year when they do this route, you can however choose to go into 1st year I believe. They do not struggle any less than the rest of us I would honestly choose what you think will benefit you in the long run. Which uni is more recognised for their degree....do they cover the same module work etc. Strathclyde is very big on its maths and constantly challenges students in that area, however it has a great support system in place for that Also make sure you choose where you will be happy, last you want is being miserable during your studies.
