    Right, I'm wanting to do chem eng and have applied at Leeds,Manchester,Nottingham,Loug hborough and sheffield.

    As a post grad (fingers crossed), I hope to go into the petrochemical sector.

    From what I see, apparently chem eng undergraduates, have a huge amount of work to, course its self is extremely hard and difficult to understand and requires lots of studying and review,

    Are these statements over the top ? I know its gonna be hard but is it as hard as people say ?

    Also, as I want to go into the petro chemical sector, would it be better for me to just apply for a petroleum engineering rather than chemical engineering ?

    I would assume the course would be shorter, somewhat easier and would the salary be the same ?

    All engineering subjects are very challenging. If you take any engineering discipline as your area of study, expect that it won't be a walk in the park.
