    A little bit of background.
    I received offers from these universities to study Mechanical engineering (Nottingham and leeds) and electronic engineering (Kings).
    I like all the Campuses and I have asked teachers at my previous sixth form and they have told me to go Kings. Looking at rankings for mechanical engineering Leeds is 4th and Nottingham is 16th. Kings isn't on the rankings for electronic engineering?
    I have looked at living costs and living in London is more expensive compared to Leeds or Nottingham.

    I'm here to ask if anyone has completed or goes to Kings for engineering and if they could provide me with information with how good it is?

    I don't mind studying electronic or mechanical and so which University should I pick???? I'm lost.

    Thank you!!

    Can you afford to live in London? Would you be happy commuting from halls/flats to university for 4 years?

    Would you be happy studying on a campus in the suburbs? Would you be happy living in Nottingham or Leeds?

    The difference in quality between your choices is not significant - so what matters is picking the course/university where you can thrive. Dropping out or scraping a 2:2 from choosing somewhere you know isn’t suited to you is going to harm your future far more than picking any of choices.

    Guardian says Leeds is 1st for mech engineering but it's generally up to u.Personally if it was me I would avoid Kings cuz it's the most expensive compared to the other 2 and it's very low on the rankings so that would put me off also not in the top 15 ><

    If u like electronic u could always contact Leeds/notts to change mech to electronics but both degrees are respected and good future job prospects because their is a lack of them currently.leeds and notts are both heavily linked industry wise so if u wanna do a placement year or msc it's very good.
