The first two years at Cambridge are general engineering topics, and then you specialise in years 3 & 4.

Are you likely to be on target for A*A*A?

And you have 5 choices.

I think i can come up with A*A*A.But if i don't get to Cambridge,it would probably because of me not doing much extra curricular activities.I am doing an external reaserch project with Queen Mary Uni on exoplanets and also doing Maths club in my College.Also i am reading some most recommended Physics and Maths book.But I know for University like Cambridge these are not enough.If you had any suggestios for me that would be much appreciated!!

I doubt there's many students who have done an external research project... sounds good to me. You don't need lots of supercurriculars.

Hi there!

At the University of Bath, we offer a MEng in Aerospace Engineering. Our entry requirements are A*AA so if you are on track for a Cambridge application, Bath is definitely somewhere to consider

For the aerospace engineering course at Bath, you spend the first 2 years studying mechanical engineering and for your 3rd and final year you can specialise in aerospace modules. Both Bath and the mechanical engineering course is highly ranked; in the Guardian University Guide 2019 we were ranked 2nd for mechanical engineering.

I am a second year chemical engineering student at Bath, so although I don't study the course you are interested in, I have a great insight into the Faculty of Engineering. One of the best things about Bath is the industrial reputation and links. Bath strongly encourages taking an industrial placement to contextualise your learning and improve employability for after graduation. Additionally, the mechanical engineering course includes lots of project work which is based on industry projects, which really gives students a deeper insight into engineering.

Bath itself is a great university. It is a campus university and it has an amazing community vibe. Everything you need is in one place; the walk from one end of campus to the other is only about 15 minutes, which is really practical. The city is only a 10/15 minute bus journey away and the busses run 24/7 in term time. The sports facilities are top quality; whether you're very into sport or just want to try something new. The SU has many sports, societies, volunteering and media opportunities to get involved with; there is definitely something for everyone. For your first year, the student halls are situated either on campus or in the heart of the city centre - both of which make an excellent spot for adjusting to uni life. I adore the city of Bath; it is lively and vibrant and such a pretty place to be. As it is not the biggest place, it has a very homely feel, even though there is still plenty to do. The nightlife is varied and there are different pubs and clubs on offer. Bristol is only 15 minutes away by train if you fancy a change of scene.

I hope that gave you an insight into life at Bath - if you have any questions please let me know do have a look at our open days to see for yourself!

No - it's not good for Engineering as you cannot do a year in Industry and the course is not industry related. If you are sure you want to do Aero then start that course and you will get a better/deeper grounding.

Yes they do, their aero pathway is fully accredited by RAeS

It's not the same as doing Aero for a full degree - and they still do not offer a year in industry.

Wut? It is a full degree. RAeS wouldn't accredit it otherwise. This is in contrast with, for example, Oxford's course which isn't accredited for aero.

Without a year in industry it's just not worth it ...much better options elsewhere. I never suggested Oxford ... why even mention it?!

RAeS considers it worth it. Y0u said it wasn't a full degree, and yet it is.

And I simply contrasted it with another course that many people consider to be "general" engineering to point out the difference in accreditations.
