    I currently hold offers from both Manchester and Imperial to study Chem Eng next year but can't decide where to go. Manchester works out to be around half the cost of going to imperial and also includes a year in industry in a 4 year MEng course and so I would come out with very little debt although I don't mind paying the extra cost if going to the more prestigious Imperial would provide a significantly better degree.

    Thanks for any advice

    Hey, I was in the same position as you a couple of years ago (along with Birmingham) - I chose Manchester, and since haven't regretted my choice one bit.

    Both Manchester and Imperial have internationally renowned chemeng departments with fantastic pilot plants and lecturers, but there were many reasons for me to ultimately choose Manchester - the whole University seemed much more lively, they offered a year in industry within the 4 year Masters degree which was a huge plus, the cost of living is ridiculously cheap compared to London, and students tend to be generally more friendly.

    But ultimately the choice is up to you, where can you see yourself living and working for the next four years?
How are you feeling about your exams?
