    Hello, I am an international student who got accepted to Chemical Engineering Beng at the university of Manchester, would someone familiar with the university tell me how good UofM is for ChemEng? And how good is it in terms of international reputation? Also, is it considered one of the top universities in engineering in the UK? Thanks!

    Why did you apply there if you didn't know the answer to those questions?

    Luckily for you it has a good reputation for engineering.

    I do know the answers, but I heard loosely through some articles that it was famous for low satisfaction, and is a mid-tier university. How would you rate it against Imperial and Bath, if you don't mind?

    As I said before, it has a good reputation for engineering. Ratings are subjective, and all three unis are broadly similar. As an engineer working in the oil and gas industry with occasional responsibility for interviewing potential candidates, I wouldn't say any one is any better than any other. But what's important to me may not be what's important to someone else. Good luck.

    I actually want to specialise in that same field, so your detailed opinion would be greatly appreciated. If there is anything else about UofM that you know, please do inform me, thanks for your time.

    Hi, I study ChemEng at Manchester at the moment and I would say the facilities here are good. But I feel since the course size is so large the level of teaching is perhaps compromised and a bit impersonal. Then again, it's all about what you want from the course and if you ask for help you'll certainly get it from most lecturers.
