    hey guys ,
    i plan on applying for chemical engineering this year and i have so many questions.Should i pick my uni based on how good they are ranked in general or how high they are ranked based on chemical engineering. I don't know any of my predicted grades yet but i'm hopeful. I have looked at various unis and i was adviced to only apply to ICHEM accredited universities. Realistically i think i'm perfectly capable of AAA i take Chemistry, Physics and math. Below are the top 8 unis i'm considering, kindly help pick out 5

    CAMBRIDGE
    IMPERIAL
    BATH
    NOTTINGHAM
    NEWCASTLE
    LOUGHBOUROUGH
    SUREEY
    SWANSEA

    Also, you're free to add any other uni to your top 5 but please include reason.

    i really need help please

    You need A*A*A for Cambridge and Imperial. And A*AA for some others too. Check the university requirements.

    What did you get in AS?

    I don't have AS grades because I got sick during some of my units so I don't have final grades for my subjects. I'm going to take the units I missed next June.

    I know about the requirements

    So, if you are realistically on target for A*A*A then apply to Cambridge/Imperial. If you aren't then you would probably be wasting 2 slots on your UCAS.

    You should consider Manchester, they have excellent new facilities (a new building dedicated to chemical engineering) international reputation, ICHEM accredited as well as the option of a 4 Year MEng that includes Industrial Experience which I don't think is offered by a lot of universities.
    Entry requirement onto the standard BEng or MEng is AAA, if you do however wish to apply to the 4 MEng with Industrial Experience then the entry requirement is A*AA.

    All in all I would say it's a good choice

    1.Yes but in order to do so you must get 60% or above in your first year at uni. Alternatively you can also apply for the MEng or BEng and then switch later on in the year if you're feeling confident in getting the required A*AA

    2.Yes there is an interview they ask you some standard questions eg why study @ Manchester and why chemical engineering and some technical questions to test your understanding of maths/chem/physics

    3. I applied for the BEng and then switched to the MEng with Industrial Experience

    Don't worry they guide you through the technical questions and if you get invited to an interview they will most likely give you an offer. I think the interviews are to weed out people who don't really want to study chemical engineering i.e. wanna be medics who put chem eng as their 5th option. Also to see how you are as a person ,that's it really.
