    Hi all

    I really want to study at ICL, unfortunately I couldn't make it.
    Cranfield is my only left option.
    I know current oil industry is not that good but is it worth to study chemical engineering area at Cranfield to get a job as a non-EU?

    You're a graduate already, right? Why do you think Cranfield is your only option left?

    Cranfield has an excellent reputation within the oil and gas industry, although as you say the industry in the UK at the moment is about as bad as it has ever been. Companies in Aberdeen are in survival mode and if they can avoid hiring they will. Unless you have some in-demand skill or experience then trying to get a job will be extremely difficult at the moment. Of course there are other options for process engineers - food, manufacturing, chemicals etc - but I don't know the current job market for those industries.
