Doing further maths would help but is obviously inessential (plenty of people don't have it). Subjects like matrices and complex numbers come up a lot + you're just getting more general exposure to mathematics.

You do MATLAB programming as part of your maths modules, you won't need to prepare for it before starting though + you need the paid software licence which UCL gives you (I think).

Workload will be tough but this is a good thing, it is hard for everyone and this forces you to develop as a person. You are wasting your time with any uni course which doesn't challenge you. Ultimately, it is do-able and you can access the support you need in any areas you struggle with by reaching out to your lecturers.

I study biochemical engineering at UCL (I would defo consider this for your degree subject also, you can always switch once you're in as you'll have the grades for either course). All of our engineering courses at UCL share the some core modules + optional ones through the IEP (google it) which is great.
