I am trying to figure out which universities to apply for the civil engineering course. Please suggest good universities with challenging courses. Also please help me evaluate the following universities:

University of Southampton
University of Bath

I believe the above two universities are regarded as few of the best ones and have excellent civil engineering departments and high entry standards (A*AA).

University of Bristol
University of Leeds
University of Manchester

They are highly ranked highly but I am not quite sure about the department.

UCL

It has high entry requirements but I have not heard much about the department.


University of Glasgow

There were some suspicious reviews about this universities.

Thank you so much for replying.

How do you find the lecture? Do you find them challenging and sufficiently detailed? Are professors cooperative?

How challenging is the course, say compared A level maths/further maths? Is there anything that you do not like about the course?

I haven’t been here for long (1 week of freshers and two weeks of lectures). The lecturers here are amazing, very clear with content and nice people. Almost all provide the lecture slides, along with their own notes and a recording of the lecture on Moodle. It hasn’t been challenging as of yet but it will amp up after Christmas.

We don’t start the first maths module until after Christmas. But we did take a maths test and people who scored below 50% have been advised to go to additional maths classes but plenty of us go even if we did get higher. This class is just to get you up to scratch with c3/c4 content. The maths module goes slightly past Fp3 level but they will teach everything to you. There is also a maths tutoring scheme here where you can book an appointment with a teacher and they will give you one to one class on what ever you want. I’d say that that 30-40% have already done further maths but not many at all have done fp3.

I don’t have any complaints so far about the course.

Any other questions you’re welcome to dm me

Hi 👋 I just got an offer from bath for civil engineering!
I was wondering how things are going so far since I’d really love to go there. How many people are studying civil engineering there? And how many hours of lectures do you have per week?

Thanks!!

You can become a civil engineer, work in finance or do a law conversion but there are plenty of other jobs open to you.

Heriot-Watt and Strathclyde are very strong for engineering generally (I don't actually know if they offer civil specifically though) and have excellent industry links from what I hear. Loughborough is also a very good uni for engineering and has a lot of industry connections. Imperial and Oxbridge (the latter starting as general engineering courses, although you can specialise in civil/structural/environmental engineering later in the course) are obviously very strong in general across their courses and have good engineering courses, and might be worth considering if you are looking at A*A*A predictions.

UCL seems to have a lot of dissatisfied students in it's engineering department...make of that what you will. Leeds I believe has a strong chemE department, but I'm not sure about the other disciplines. Manchester is generally well regarded for STEM courses, but I don't know anything about their engineering options specifically unfortuantely. Bath and Southampton are as you've said, very good for that particular course (and Southampton more broadly in engineering; I'm not sure how other Bath engineering courses compare to civil, but they have a very strong technical architecture department which may well have some cross links with teaching faculty in civil at least).
