    I'm kinda caught between the two.

    Based on what i read so far, manchester is quite crazy? as in a lot of the students at UoM get drunk all the time, party, smoke? dunno how true that is.
    As for UoB, slightly worried that the city of bath is really small, and that since UoB is quite new as compared to UoM it might not be as reputable/ employers would choose manchester graduates over bath graduates.

    Any one has any opinion/input? any help is appreciated!

    Unfortunately I can't, I'm an international, and won't have a chance to go over

    The international reputation of Bath is pretty good and getting better so I doubt that would be a problem.

    As for drinking, etc. at university you will always be able to find your niche if you look hard enough.

    How about academic wise? Are the professors/lecturers good at what they're doing? Also how important is good placement? Cos if i go to UoM i'd be doing Chem eng yini, but at UoB it'll just be Chem eng. Would the good placement be important even if I don't do year with placement for UoB

    If I were in your position I would go for Bath. Great city, lovely area, and the year in industry is a huge bonus.

    If i were to go to bath, i wouldn't do year in industry, as that would mean that its a 5 year course

    The thing is that i grew up in a big city, i have no doubt that bath is a great place, but slightly worried that it'll be too small

    You could look at Unistats for Chemical Engineering in each university.

    Hi,

    I'm a second year Chemical Engineering student at Bath. I just thought I'd let you know of my experiences of living in Bath so far, having moved from London.

    I was worried about the size too when I applied but I really haven't found it an issue. There isn't perhaps the same range of restaurants/bars/clubs as there is in big cities but there are lots of perks of living in a smaller city.

    Everything is very compact, so getting around is easy as nothing is more than a half an hour journey away. Also because it's a smaller place, there is more of a focus on the student population so we get better looked after than at other universities in big cities. And if you do ever have a need to go to a bigger city, Bristol is just a ten minute train journey away.

    If you can, I'd come and visit it and see what you think. Hope that helps! If you've got any more questions, just quote me.

    Tim
