aerospace engineering

Hi, ive recieved offers for aerospace engineering from
university of surrey
university of leichester
university of swansea
university of liverpool
university of salford
which uni would probably be the best for aerospace out of these
Choosing unis is defo a personal decision rather than letting other people tell you what they prefer. i applied to aero too and one thing I liked was looking at all the labs so if you haven't visited I would say go on the 'offer holders days' as they can really help.
Theres some other things too like where do you wanna go? Are you gonna have to move out / want to move out. What is the student accoms like at them all? And the grades needed too? I would defo put a higher grade needed one at firm and then a lower for insurance just in case.
Its feels like a pretty big decision but in the end you will have a blast wherever you end up and meet great people. Just choose whatever gives you the best gut feeling :smile:

issue is i cant go for offer holders days because i dont live in the UK... uni of liverpool has a higher entry requirment but its also far from london, thats one of my main concerns but course wise and everything theyre both similar but liverpool is a bit more expensive, have u studied at either liverpool or surrey?

I'm going to uni next year too so I haven't studied in either but I'm from the north west quite near Liverpool. If getting too and from London is a worry the train from lime Street to Euston is really quick and relatively easy. I'm not sure price wise on either so that's definitely something to research and look at the student accommodation. :smile:
