Apply to do a course that interests you and you expect to enjoy for 3 or 4 (or more in the case of medicine) years. Not one you think it is less, or more, competitive.

That said, if you are expected to meet a university's typical entry requirements for ChemEng it's likely you will get an offer.

Are there any websites which give an insight into the applications to offers ratio of different engineering courses at different universities?

Thanks.

Something not so related to the OP, but thought I'd ask, especially whilst I have the attention of the TSR statistics guru. Are there numbers published on the amount of people that enter a course each year, as well as those who graduate each year?

Indirectly on unistats

For example hovering over the (i) icon on the top chart here: https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/subje...eturnTo/Search gives the entrants (from 2014/15 academic year) as 60 (rounded to the nearest 5)
The same icon for the 3rd chart down here: https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/subje...eturnTo/Search shows qualifying students in 2014/15 as 50.

In some courses this data either wont be available (scottish universities don't have to provide full unistats data) or for small courses will be based on multiple years aggregated together or subjects groups together

This only covers data from 2014/15 (which can be downloaded in full here: https://unistats.direct.gov.uk/open-access-data/ ) - 2015/16 data will replace it in a couple of weeks time when unistats updates.
