Bath or Loughborough ?

Which would be the best for MSc in Automotive engineering?
My main concern is from the point of work opportunities and location to be considered.

Hi @FawazK ,

Great to hear you are considering Loughborough 🙂

Loughborough is one of the largest engineering Universities in the country and the facilities are amazing. Take a look at our engineering page with details of what engineering at Loughborough has to to offer including employability details, industry links and research information.

If you haven't already I would recommend looking at the course page and looking through all the offered modules for each year under 'What You'll Study'. When I was deciding which university to pick I found it really useful to compare the modules with other universities to see which suited me best. There is also information on this page about the option to do a placement year/study abroad. The university has close links with industrial partners where you can get a lot of support in sourcing and securing a placement- this support is something I found particularly useful. There is also great support through the careers network for help and advice for after graduation.

Although I don't study the same course I can give you some insight to Loughborough in general. Loughborough is very much a student town and as you are on a campus it has such a strong community feel- I really love this as it is not as you tend to see a lot of people you know. People are really friendly and I have met some great friends. The facilities at Loughborough are amazing- particularly for sport but also for learning. During the week most social events happens on campus through the Student Union. For example, there tend to be 2 nights out in the week (Wednesday and Friday) and events during the day which differ week to week. Take a look at our student union website for more insight here. At the weekends more seems to happen off campus. In town (which is walking distance from campus) there are multiple pubs, bars, cafe's, restaurants and nightclubs which tend to be full of students at the weekend. You do need to keep in mind that Loughborough is a town so can't offer what big cities can. If we fancy a bigger city night out we tend to go to either Nottingham or Leicester on the train as they are both approximately 20 minutes away. The train station isn't far from campus and there is a campus shuttle which goes to the station.

I hope this helps. If you have any other questions please do ask 🙂

Alex
