What do you need to get in?
Main entry requirements
AAA including Maths and Physics. *If you are not taking Physics A level but are passionate about studying MEng Aerospace Engineering, contact us to discuss our pre-sessional Faculty of Engineering Physics Pathway programme. We would still require AAA from your A levels which must include Maths. Completing the Physics Pathway programme would prepare you for the degree, and involves attendance at the University for 4 weeks prior to the first year of your degree course beginning. The Physics Pathway programme is free, and scholarships for accommodation are also available for some applicants. For further details please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org, Tel: 0114 2227837

Provided by UCAS, this is the percentage of applicants who were offered a place on the course last year. Note that not all applicants receiving offers will take up the place, so this figure is likely to differ from applicants to places.
Tuition fee & financial support£9,250
Maximum annual fee for UK students. NHS-funded, sandwich or part-time course fees may vary.
If you live in:
- Scotland and go to a Scottish university, you won’t pay tuition fees
- Northern Ireland and go to an NI uni, you’ll pay £3,805 in tuition fees
- Wales you’ll pay £3,810 in fees and get a tuition fee grant to cover the rest
Every degree course is different, so it’s important to find one that suits your interests and matches the way you prefer to work – from the modules you’ll be studying to how you’ll be assessed. Top things to look for when comparing courses
