The best uni to study Chemical Engineering? watch

    • Thread Starter

    Aside from Oxbridge/Imperial, what other unis are good in terms of social. industrial link, learning(lecturers), work load and more? I'm considering bath, manchester, and ucl. Any thoughts on these unis perhaps?

    There isn't a 'best uni'. And reconsider the idea that Oxbridge/Imperial are the best, that simply isn't true.

    I think you should make your personal research and see which one of the factors that you've put count the most. Have a look at the league tables (always take them with a pinch of salt), especially the sections for student satisfaction or academic quality (for work load, quality of lectures etc.), and the graduate prospects, which will also show if the University has good links and then have a look at the cities in general. Another thing which I also value a lot is the Research Quality of the department and where their research strengths are. For example in your case some Chem Eng departments might focus more in the Pharmaceutical sector and others in the Oil&Gas; think which attracts you the most and put that in the decision process as well, as this will probably affect your dissertation topic and your modules focus and specializations. This could also show in which industries the Uni has links, since it will be the one where they get the most funding from...
