    Bath is a pretty campus. Manchester is a great city to be a student in - there are so many students. DOn't know about university accommodation, but for private rented accommodation, Bath is allegedly one of the more expensive places to live. If money is likely to be an issue, maybe check out some accommodation prices.

    personal preference both are equally likely to land you a ChemE job.
    I'd choose Bath if it were me.

    The university as a whole is focused on engineering I really appreciate that.

    Also out of curiosity, are both universities giving you the same offer grade wise?

    Yes Bath wants A*AA but A* in chemistry or maths whereas Manchester A*AA in any subjects, the only reason I'm put off by bath is although it seems like such an a amazing university, it requires 5 years with a year industry with a masters whereas in Manchester you get the same thing however within 4 years.

    Honestly both will give you exactly the same job prospects, if the 5 years thing is a big deal for you go for Manchester, more importantly though go to the one you feel is the correct fit for you 4 years in Manchester will feel like an eternity if you hate it and 5 years in Bath will fly by if you love it and vice versa.

    I went to Manchester (for Petroleum Engineering) and absolutely loved it particularly the food and atmosphere.

    The year in industry is optional!

    Sources: I'm a Bath Chem Eng firmer who didn't apply for a year in industry; don't want one. And: http://www.bath.ac.uk/chem-eng/ug/placements/
