Look at the course details - optional units for all 3 ot 4 years of the course - is there enough to interstes you and enough flexibility with choices.

Are there any extras like an industrial placement or study abroad - this is a big plus for your graduate CV.

Each Uni - find the campus tour film on YouTube, and if there are any subject films about the Aero course at each Uni.

Town - think about living in each place for 3/4 years. Cost of housing (Swansea will be cheaper...), how you will get homw etc etc.

I know nothing about Surrey. Engineering at Swansea is housed on a new campus built in 2015. It is an out of town campus about 2 and 1/2 miles out of the city centre. Look into all the other things you have been told to and come to your own conclusion. What is right for one is wrong for another. There is no rush to make this decision.

To introduce myself – I’m Joao. I am in my final year studying BSc Economics at Surrey University. I recently finished my one-year industrial placement as an Economist for the British Government’s Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra). Here I acquired valuable competencies such as analytical, communication and interpersonal skills while playing a key role in the Analysis and Evidence Team. I also had the opportunity to work as a Private Secretary in the Private Office.

Surrey is one of the UK’s leading universities for aerospace engineering with our courses ranked top 10 in the UK in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022. Our award-winning Professional Training Placements scheme prepares students for roles in the industry. We were also named the University of the Year for Graduate Employment in The Times/Sunday Times Good University Guide 2022. As a BEng or MEng Aerospace Engineering student, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art wind-tunnel research facilities and learn from world-leading experts in the field.

Our close links with the industry will help develop your employment skills. You can also hone your practical, teamwork and leadership skills by joining one of our successful and dynamic student competition design teams. Our aerospace engineering courses encompass advanced materials, design, aerodynamics, space systems, propulsion, and the latest in computational and simulation tools. By using our extensive facilities for aerodynamics and materials testing, including our demonstrator jet engine and flight simulator, you’ll put the theory you learn into practice. With our research-led teaching, specialists will guide you in areas such as aircraft and environmental aerodynamics, propulsion, computational fluid dynamics and modelling of flows in gas-turbine engines (with links to our Rolls-Royce University Technology Centre).

You can apply to study for either a BEng or MEng (Master of Engineering). The MEng builds on the BEng course with a masters year and is a direct route to a masters qualification. This course is professionally accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

I hope this has helped

Thanks for that long explanation I’ll definitely go opening day at Surrey and also Swansea and then it’ll probably be easier for me to pick between the two.
