Which uni? Lboro/BristolWatch
Student life, in partnership with UEA
Loughborough is a wonderful campus uni. It's self-contained so you won't need to venture off-campus. However, Nottingham is 30 minutes away by train if you did want to escape from the campus atmosphere.
Bristol is again a lovely uni and the city of Bristol is lovely (admittedly not right now with the Kill Bill stuff going on). The Watershed in Bristol is a cool place to hang out.
Hi i'm hoping to do BENG civil engineering at either Bristol or Lboro(with placement at lboro). Not sure where I should go. I already weighed it up and still they're both good in my opinion. I am confident I can meet the entry requirements for both. They are similar distance from where i live. The course modules seem to differ with Bristol having alot more math modules.I dont take further maths. I do know they will go over a level maths to make sure people are at similar levels . Not doing a MENG because i'm not sure if I want to end up entirely as civil engineer but it does seem interesting. I guess it boils down to the uni itself and what they're like. Please give me ideas and new information
It's great that you're considering studying at Loughborough!
As already mentioned by mike23mike, it sounds like you've already done your research into the courses, which is great to see!
