Change of Course Offer

You may have been made a Change of Course offer.  This means that although you were unsuccessful in securing a place on your chosen course, the Faculty of Engineering has decided to make you an offer on an alternative course.

You can choose to accept or reject this change of course offer in UCAS Track. There is no rush to make this decision, take some time to look at the department web page which gives information about the course including:

  • Modules – several of our engineering courses have similar or common modules. Aerospace and Bioengineering are multi-disciplinary courses involving modules across the Engineering faculty.
  • Careers – many engineering companies employ students from a variety of different engineering courses. Previous graduates from Mechanical, Materials, Aerospace, Chemical, Civil and Electronic Engineering have all been employed by Atkins. Rolls-Royce is a Top 10 employer for Aerospace Engineering, Automatic Control & Systems Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering, Chemical & Biological Engineering, Electrical & Electronic Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.
  • Student case studies – learn more from current students studying the course.   

There may still be places on other courses in the departments listed below. If you would like further information please contact the department using the contact details below.

We encourage you to speak to the Admissions tutor to find out more about the offered alternative course by calling the number listed:
