Hello!
I study A-Levels in Maths (Predicted A), Geography (Predicted A) and Computer Science (Predicted C).

I am choosing between these 5 unis for my last 2 ucas options:
City University Mechanical engineering foundation programme / MEng Mechanical engineering) (CDD-ABB)
QMUL - Engineering Foundation Year BEng (BBB)
Brunel - Engineering Foundation Year / BEng (CCC-BBB)
Loughbrough- Engineering foundation year (BBB/ABC)
Nottingham - Engineering foundation year (BBB)

I'll give you a rundown on what I think of each one:

City: It looks like a decent course and I can go straight into MEng which I want to do ideally since I don't want to do the foundation year ideally. But I just saw the employment rate is 59.4% as of 2016-17 which is appalling. That is kinda putting me off but I am not so sure about it.

QMUL: I heard it is a good uni and I checked the rankings and it is decent. I would have to do the foundation year and then do BEng/MEng. I'm not sure since I haven't been to it yet.

Brunel: I can get into the BEng and try get into MEng by working solidly so I can get charterd as soon as possible. I have been and the place looks decent .

Loughbrough- The facilities and course are excellent but it looked so deserted when I went there. Maybe because there were hardly any freshers and uni students. It might be different once I go there. The place is decent as it has everything you need really. I would do the foundation then BEng there.

Nottingham: I wanted to go but I wasn't sure about it but my friend did and it looks good. It says preferbly physics for the BEng so i could try to apply for that but I'm not sure though (Need advice).

Thats it. Let me know what would u choose and why. THANKSSS

IMO

replace city and brunel with two of the three choices

cheaper cost of living + better universities
I'm dead set on applying to sheffield/Manchester/Southampton.

Then Notts and Loughborough should you your last 2 choices.

London = $$$$ (us macbook doesn't have uk keys)
I'm commuting from home if I stay in London for uni.So it's significantly cheaper

You don't need to make the decision yet. Send off your UCAS as it is and you can add the other choices at any time until the deadline (January 15th, or later if the course isn't filled, but don't risk that)
I'd see what responses you get from your other choices and make a decision based on that later
