Most important thing is a placement year because very little distinguishes university students who just get high grades now and experience is what employers want. You will all pretty much know the same stuff at the end but if you have experience you will have a bigger range of knowledge and understand real life situations etc. Russell group isn't priority, I'm doing civ eng at a non RG and they offer a scholarship which I'm on and if I don't mess it up I'm pretty much guaranteed a job at the end. Also placement years mean that you also build links and if you apply to a location where you did a placement at someone there will be like "oh yeah I worked with them, I know they're good".(Original post by Brruh)
So mechanical it is then! Thanks for that! Now where? My parents (and I) want an RG uni, I like Cambridge, but idk if I can make it with these grades? Thoughts?
(BTW: Thanks a lot for cooperating and helping, it's nice to see you care )
I would say accreditation is above that in importance but really any good university should have that.

Examples would be nice , as aside from Cambridge Birmingham Imperial UCL and Bath, I don't know too many good for mech, also I'd rather stay closer to home (Birmingham), but the only exceptions I was willing to make were for the above 4

Yeah I would've thought that it would be chemical engineers since they would design them for rates of reactions and all that. In a pressure vessel I understand mechanical since there isn't really any production and reactions, I believe I was more thinking along the lines of processing vessels.
