Does anyone know if there is a UK uni that offers a course which focuses specifically on or has modules on rollercoaster design/engineering?
Any responses much appreciated 😊

It seems like the OU has a section of their 'Using Mathematics' Module which includes looking at rollercoaster design, otherwise it's a very, very niche discipline of engineering so I don't think you'll find anything.
From what I can tell from what I can find online, your best bets are either to do an apprenticeship, or start up your career for a few years in aeronautics then switch into rollercoaster engineering, and I imagine having done some work in railways might help as well (some unis do a rail module for mechanical engineers, and there's also an IMechE competition around building a train so look for these).
