My deadline for replying to universities is in a few days and I have no idea what I want to do. I may as well firm something for now, even if I reapply.

But which one? I have similar levels of interest in all of them, but what is best in terms of career prospects, salaries, wider range of industries, internationalism etc? I'm also confused as to which course has a bigger future.

1. Chemical and Aeronautical Engineering are quite different... in terms of career prospects all of them are not bad for your subjects...

2. Since your Scottish Universities are free... having free education has a lot of benefits so definitely take that into consideration.

3. Your university doesn't define who you are... you make your own future- all of them are of similar quality so none of them would be a bad choice

Tagging in Doonesbury who knows more about Engineering compared to me to see if he has anything to add

As wolfmoon88 says, chemical and aeronautical engineering are quite different. I think deciding between those two is possibly the main factor.

Secondly, I don't think it's worth paying £37,000 in tuition fees when you can get instead get it for free. However, Bristol probably is a better place to study aero engineering as it does have a lot of aerospace companies located near it. Whether you think it is worth £37,000 extra to study there is up to you.
