Hiya! So I’ve got offers from Liverpool, Sheffield, Loughborough, Notts and Manchester and was wondering what the pros and cons for these Unis are and which I should firm and insure? I really liked sheffield because the course is very interdisciplinary so I could get a taste for a lot of different engineering types, which is definitely something i look for in a degree. Also any info on the Unis in general and the quality of teaching would be useful! Thank you loads in advance!

It depends what you want to do. If you want to go into industry, the employability is very similar and tbh your ability to get in is more down to you.
If general employability outside of engineering is important to you then Notts is best followed closely by Manchester then the rest all are very good.

Im sure all have strong employer links, Loughborough's engineering department is huge. Notts & Sheffield both have strong connections to Rolls-Royce as they are basically on each others doorsteps.

TBH it doesnt really matter, teaching quality have a look and make sure they are TEF gold. If you care about research Manchester & Notts are ahead of the others. I dont think theres much in it, what campus do you prefer, how important is the social side of each uni, is it close or far away from home... is there a particular type of aerospace your interested in one uni specialises in: propulsion, avionics, fluid-mechanics, satellite/space systems, CFD etc.

Hey pickles1234,

All those unis are great engineering options and congrats on receiving offers from them all!

Loughborough has a long history of engineering and provides a great platform for all our students to go into the workplace. On all our engineering programmes you have the option to take a year in industry and are supported throughout this process by our careers network. For both placement students and graduates we put on several careers fairs across the years, some specific to engineering students, where you get to meet a range of employers. Big names include, Pirelli, Rolls Royce group, Dyson and Mondelez International.

One thing that Loughborough is great at though is developing the individual alongside helping you to succeed in your degree. There are so many opportunities to help you grow as a person through activities put on by the Student's Union and the clubs and societies offered within LSU. If you're sporty there are plenty of chances to play at any level, even trying a new sport through various taster sessions hosted by clubs across the year. Loughborough isn't all sport though, we offer LU Arts that covers all music and creative disciplines alongside activities like LU Motorsport.

I would recommend weighing up your choices based on what you value most including things like distance from home and cost of living (quite low at Loughborough). If you have the option to attend offer holder days this may help you in deciding so would thoroughly recommend attending one of these.

Best Wishes,
Emily
