    Hi! Are there any Chemistry applicants, who have already sent their application to UCL? Have you heard anything from UCL? Maybe has someone already received an invitation to the interview?

    i was going to apply for chemical engineering until last week lol. chemical engineers look at how to design chemical processes and use them sustainably on a large scale in industry, which is very different to a chemistry course. Despite the name, chemical engineering has nothing do with chemistry and has A LOT of maths which is why i decided to go for chemistry.

    UCL is notorious for taking a long time to reply. When I applied for chemistry there I remember having to wait quite a while before I got a response.

    How long did it take and when did you apply?

    Do they give offers first to those who applied before October and are there any interviews?

    Well it was 5 years ago now so I can't remember exactly how long it took, but definitely a while. I would have applied in late 2012.

    Yes, I believe it's UCL's Chemistry Department's policy to interview everyone who applies, but if you're called to interview then you're basically guaranteed a place. The chat with a lecturer is really to confirm you are who your application says you are and to make sure you know basic chemistry and have a passion for it. I think you would have to do something outrageous to be called to an interview day and then not be offered a place.

    hi! i received their request for a personal statement tailored for medicinal chemistry (because I am applying to medicine, and my personal statement is oriented to medicine rather than chemistry). I wondered if someone has received the same request? Maybe someone knows what the criteria are for this personal statement?
