    Chemical engineering doesn't even vary that much between Universities. So much stuff is required for accreditation there's not much flexibility.

    Really. The only non predominately mathematical module in the first year is the single chemistry module.
    A ChemEng degree is going to be at least two third applied maths.
    What?, no I disagree I think that link shows many modules without maths , if you click on the modules it shows a breakdown on what is in then

    Your in for a huge surprise if you go in to the degree thinking its less than a half maths, let alone just 20%.

    Hi just read your thread. I'm sticking chemistry,biology and geography at a level and would like to do chem eng. degree but stupidly didn't keep on maths. Interested on your opinion of foundation courses. What did you decide in the end.

    If you want to go through clearing then i would suggest contacting the universities you want to go to and find out from them how you should prepare...also tell them your grades!

    Does anyone know about the availability of Chem Eng Foundation Year?

    I have predictions of A (Politics) B (Biology) and C (Chemistry), I sat AS level maths but didn't really work for it or revise so I have an E in Maths AS, would I still be able to apply to the Foundation Year or would they just not consider me?
