uh :confused: what do you mean by best? it depends on your skills, abilities and what you want to do, one will be better for you than it will for someone else etc.

The other choices you made is good. The most important thing is to choose the course that you like out of the 6 choices.

If you've got your heart set on that course then go for it. You're the one who's going to spend 3/4 years doing the course, not us .

I'd personally pick the international programme at UCL but that is because I would love to spend a year abroad.

well basically put it simply, i like chemistry!!
The reason im iterested in the surrey course (computer aided chemistry) is because iv got previous IT knowledge, i got a sort of IT background, and since i enjoy chemistry so much and am good at it i thought maybe combining the 2 together would be a good idea?

I just cant make up my mind in regards to what will be the best option in the long run, i mean if i come out of imperial with a straight chemistry degree is there gonna be a lot of job opportunities open to me? cos i thought maybe a straight chem degree would be too broad and the pay isnt really good is it?!

And the surrey course also offers 1 year placement, which is always a good thing!

What would you guys recommend the best course would be in the long run? Thinking about £££££ money also? And job prospects and such.
I would love to maybe after my degree go off to canada to do another 2 years further study and also work at the same time, hopefully live there.. so what u guys recommend!?

sorry to be so stupid!

You're obviously interested in the medicinal and pharmacology aspects of chemistry so in your position I would choose Chemistry with Medicinal Chemistry, Imperial College London.

They might ask that question about choosing 2 courses at their institute. In addition, questions about chemistry might be asked too. Don't worry, they will also ask you stuff outside of chemistry.

Out of interest, what offers have you been made, if any? As I would guess that Surrey would be your lowest offer. I know Imperial has a very good chemistry department, but by doing computery stuff with chemistry does give you a bit 'extra' if you see what I mean.

You do use computers quite a lot in a standard chemistry degree - everything that's done using spectrometers uses a computer and requires you to fiddle about with the spectrum a bit. Also I've found with physical chemistry experiments, the results always need interpretting using graphs on excel and stuff, so you do get to use computers quite a bit anyway.

well this link has made me think that the course at surrey is really the best one, if im thinking abuout long term, its still an Mchem and i get all the normal chemistrt stuff taught but also the extra computing side also, :confused: i dunno
well iv met the admissions officer at surrey already for a chat and a tour of the uni, i gotta say i wasnt tooooo impressed with the uni, although i didnt look around much. theyv just had an extension on the chemistry labs and stuff.
iv basically already got the offer at surrey i think. at the interview he said to me once he gets my ucas in hell invite me to a ucas open day etc.. and also said iv already met their requirements for the course, so i think iv basically garunteed an offer there,
as for the others i havent heard yet, i got a confirmation letter from imperial today and they said they will get back to me in regards to an interview etc..
so i dunno
is imperial hard to get into?

fairly. although they do give out quite a high proportion of offers. imperial is a brilliant university though and is at/near the top for science in the country - i would think very carefully about whether you should decline an imperial offer if you're successful with them.

i agree here. with regards to offers for chemistry, i know people who got BBB offers post interview - so presumably it's not one of their most competitive subjects, but the effects of other chem depts. closing may change this slightly?
