MSc Chemical Engineering at Nottingham Vs. Imperial watch

    • Thread Starter

    Hello, I would just like some advice on a decision.

    I aim to do a MSc in Advance Chemical Engineering and I have narrowed my choices down to Nottingham and Imperial College London.

    Assuming I get an offer at both, which one should I pick?

    Although Imperial is very reputable, it will be expensive commuting there on a daily basis (I live close to London). Nottingham is also quite reputable and will also be approximately £4000-£5000 cheaper than Imperial.

    So, is the extra price tag worth it for Imperial or does it not really make a difference and I am better off going to Nottingham?


    What do you plan on doing after?

    There are some exceptions where certain unis have very strong links with certain employers but generally the uni you went to is a very small factor, especially in engineering.

    Also consider other factors like the city itself, the course content, assessment methods etc. MSc will probably involve a big research project so look at the topics available at each.
