    If you're considering ChemEng, I'd imagine you're taking science/maths subjects so choosing Law seems a bit strange. As for medicine, you only do that if you want to become a doctor and you should know whether or not you want to be a doctor.

    Also in terms of earning potential, doing a degree in ChemEng is up there with Law and Medicine.

    I'm an ex Manchester chemical engineering student.

    All I can say to those who are starting chem eng as their degree....

    80% of the students who do chem eng, by the time they graduate they done want to be a chemical engineer.

    Out of 100 student yearly, only 10-15 take a year out in industry.

    Another thing....the big deal about Chemical engineers earn high salary...lol......that is only after working in the field for 10+ years.....with salary of £35K-£40K, the actual graduate starting salary is about £20K-£25K...hardy exciting is it?

    You are in for one hell of a ride.....Let your worst nightmare begin, unless of course you really love the subject and know exactly what it really is

    ^ It's not as grim as you're trying to make it sound, but I think the university you graduate from and the area you work in effects the salary. Graduating from Imperial or UCL and working in or around London would probably give a lot higher salary.

    Anyway have a look at this. Salaries for Chemical Engineers are quite good.

    ok, i dnt kno if this will be the same with all uni's, but at manchester, we have 4 modules in the first year..each accountin for 30 crdts..1)engineering design 2) engineering mathematics 3) engineering chemistry and thermodinamics 4) transport phenomena
    all the modues seem fine at the moment and from their names, i think u can already tell wot they involve (the transport phenomena module involves heat transfer and fluid flow) and the engineering chemistry module actually has lots of physics in it as well....thats all i can say for now..unless if ne1 has ne qsns
