    Currently, I am studying for a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry and will graduate in June. At the moment, I've been considering doing an MSc Chemical Engineering Masters, however I'm not sure how to go about it considering the fact that I've just spent the last three years studying Chemistry and have no relevant experience that I could talk about in a personal statement.
    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    You don't need "relevant experience" (i.e. work in ChemEng).

    You DO need to show an interest in engineering though...

    I don't think this will present an issue, on the basis that I have never heard of it being an issue before. If you have the grades you should be fine.

    However, if you don't mind me asking, what are your reasons for wanting to transition from chemistry to engineering? As Doonesbury says, that might be something you may need to be able to elaborate on.
