    So I've been looking at some potential choices and I've been wondering what is the perfect course length. 3 years, 4 years or 5??

    Are you talking about BEng, MEng, degrees with placement years, or what?

    Just in general. I've already put down a mixture but regardless of the type of course, what is the optimum number of years to stay in a uni is what I'm asking.

    Can you not see why that's a meaningless question?

    It depends on what you want to do - that's why there are different lengths! If you're not sure, I'd go with 3 years first and then you can always decide to do more afterwards.

    Actually, it's usually easier to drop down from an MEng to a BEng.

    The optimum number of years depends on the qualification you want to achieve.

    It is what it is. If you want a MEng it takes 4 years. If you want to add a YINI then it's 5. If you just want a BEng without YINi then it's 3.

    What do *you* want?

    And as noted it's easier to apply for the "longer" course and then drop down if you decide you want to stop sooner.
