Possible to switch from chemistry course to chemical engineering? watch

    • Thread Starter

    I have no math but I have chem and physics a-level A* Chem A physics A biology
    If i were to apply to uni for chemistry then get accepted what are the chances i could change to chemical engineering?
    Possible to do maths a-level in one year?

    The courses aren't alike. ChemEng is mainly engineering, and you do very little of that in chemistry. The prerequisites are different, and it's not a way to circumvent the maths requirement.

    You'd be better taking a gap year and pushing through maths (possibly further maths too). The other option is considering foundation years for engineering courses. They're designed where people don't have the right subjects, or grades. You're only really missing the maths though, and your grades are fantastic so I don't know if some of the content would be a bit boring or not. Could be worth emailing the admissions somewhere and seeing what they suggest.
