    Its competitive because it has the highest starting graduate salary - and I've heard its difficult but so is all STEM degrees

    I'm in second year Chem Eng at Queen's Belfast. The workload is very intense, but it is manageable if you keep on top of it, and the career prospects at the end of the degree are great

    I did physics at A-level. Besides a part of one module that dealt with units (e.g. converting Newtons into SI units etc) there is no physics, at least none that I can remember off the top off my head. The course is VERY maths intensive, specifically there are lots of differentials, integrals and matrices. There is a lot of differentiation especially as you will look at many processes with respect to time e.g. fluid flow, heat transfer etc.

    The Chemistry is fairly basic so if you're good at that at A-level then you'll have no problem. I would say the math is the hardest part of the course.

    Sorry, I don't know. I plan to do the MEng and then go into the oil or gas industry which has the highest pay.

    what are your plans after that? and what do majority of the graduate tend to do after that ?

    I imagine you'd want an accredited one. I dunno about you, but I'd prefer a Russel Group uni too. QUB is both and one of the best Chem Eng Uni's in the UK so I'm fairly happy with my choice. I think 'Chemical Engineering' was actually invented here.
