So! I'm currently taking a gap year but will soon be applying for chemical engineering in university of bradford as an international student. Every time someone asks me where I plan on going for university (and I say "university of Bradford") they always say, "why bradford? They have a bad reputation". I plan on applying for a job after I've finished my master's, but I just want to know if me going to university of Bradford will act as a huge deal breaker in me getting a job? Personally, seeing that the uni is top 4 for chemical engineering in The Guardian, I would think that the course is great and the facilities are good too. Honestly, I really like what I've seen so far (even tho virtually)

You have 5 UCAS choices, maybe look at some others too.

Most people applying to Bradford are local to Bradford.

If you like it then go there. The only person I know at Bradford did a placement year with a top engineering company and is going to do their master's at Cambridge. Anecdotal but the point is, you will determine your future success, not the university.

The course is accredited and Bradford seems to focus more on industry than academia, unlike a lot of the supposedly reputable unis. Studying there shouldn't hold you back at all

Hello pat2cornelia

Great to hear you are considering applying to us and like what you see on on virtual experience.

Our engineering degrees use the CDIO approach (create, design, implement, operate). We have worked with our industry connections to ensure our course is focused on providing you with both the academic and practical understanding of the field required to have a successful career. 88% of our 2016 graduates in Chemical Engineering found employment or went on to further study within six months of graduating. But, all teaching is also research informed with our academics staff involved in active research, particularly in the Centre for Advanced Materials Engineering.

Anecdotal feedback from students that we hear again and again is the positives of relatively small class sizes for workshops and lectures, allowing more face to face time with lecturers, rather than PhD students leading practical sessions.

If you have any specific questions about Chemical Engineering at Bradford, or if you would like to talk with one of our academics do let me know.

Thank you so much for your reply! I've been rather obsessed with University of Bradford. I think the module is great and I've seen many positive reviews about the Chemical Engineering major. I love the areas around the university too (seen from the virtual camera in the website) and that there's lots of museums in bradford (which I love).

I would like to ask whether my non-academic achievements would also be considered during my application? Also I would really like to talk to any of your chemical engineering students (if that's possible).

Once again, thank you so much for your reply!

Hello pat2cornelia

:five:

For the chemical engineering course you must meet the Level 3 Maths and Chemistry requirements. But, it is always good for your career prospects to have work experience and other achievements under your belt.

Hopefully one of our chemical engineering students will come back to you to answer any questions you may have.
