Does it matter if I apply for year in industry now? Can I apply once I get there (if I do)? The same question goes towards the specific option of private pilot training? Also beng and meng - can I switch when I get there?

Hi aj_48,

Recent graduate here! In my experience, I would recommend applying to MEng Aerospace Engineering with a Year in Industry if you are considering either/both the MEng and the placement year. There can be the option to move onto these courses once you get to Sheffield, but as they ask for higher entry requirements, it can be more difficult to swap onto them than it is to swap off (to a BEng or no year in industry) if you decide you don't want to do them anymore.

I believe Aerospace Engineering (Private Pilot Training) is a separate course to Aerospace Engineering, so it would take up another one of your options on UCAS should you choose to apply to both. Having a look at the modules, it seems like the subjects you study in first year would be quite similar between the courses, getting more specialised as you continue for the course. For example in 2nd year, a core module for Aerospace Engineering could be Electronic Circuits, whereas a core module for Aerospace Engineering (Private Pilot Training) would be Ground and Flight Training. I'd recommend having a good look at the course pages below, and contacting [email protected] if you have any further questions.

Is there anything else I can help you with?

Thank you! The entry requirements do not change for Year in Industry so would this mean that it is not more competitive than normal course?

Hi @aj_48 thank you for your question.

The entry requirements for the courses you are looking at do not differ, if you did a Year in Industry or not, but this does not mean that the course is any less competitive. For whichever course you are looking at, the department of that subject will consider you based on your A Levels or equivalent and their entry requirements.

Hope this answers your question.
