    Hi all,
    Apologies if this topic may appear in one or more forums but am posting for my sister. Any feedback, direction much appreciated.

    She's a recent Chem Eng graduate (1st class Hons) from UNSW, Australia and just got accepted to both Imperial to do her MSc in Environmental Engineering and TU Delft for the same.

    1. She's struggling w accepting or indeed coping with Imperial only because of
    the 9 subjects per semester and is told the course is super intensive. Could
    anyone with information / experience help explain if this is true and elaborate
    on the courses? Work load, teaching, anything you really wished you knew
    before taking the course?

    Her reason for leaning towards Imperial is obvious - instant recognition with employers and a world renowned institution. But is it the right choice for her being used to the Australian system of 4 subjects per semester...? She works
    v hard to be sure but is that enough?

    2. TU Delft is brilliant as well and my personal pick for her given its 2 year
    duration and course work spread out over 4 courses per semester. Again if
    anyone has feedback on the Msc Env Engineering course would be much
    appreciated.

    3. Finally, as an FYI what are the best areas she could stay in 2/3 train stops
    away from Imperial that won't break the bank and she'll be able to get to uni
    in time and back?

    Thanks very much all, appreciate any help.
