I wont comment on Scottish universities but the better in England require AAA. It might be worth applying for 2 AAA universities as you are just below. Also look for a couple asking for ABB or BBB. You could try Swansea for Engineering. Worth a try on a newish campus and tends to be quite flexible with grades.

The university of Greenwich has a really lovely ChemEng department and want 112 UCAS points (BBC) so they may be worth looking at for an insurance choice. The University of Southampton is also a really welcoming and nice department but they want AAA. I mention these two specifically as they are both TINY departments (around 8 per cohort) as they are relatively new. This means you get invaluable one-on-one support that bigger unis just don't have. Neither are IChemE accredited but are both working towards this accreditation. Southampton also has great links to industry and the department are always giving their students access to scholarship opportunities and the like!

I currently hold offers for ChemEng (UCL firm and Southamtpon insurance) so feel free to ask any questions (I am currently in the process of changing course to mathematics but I've attended all of the offer holder days etc and done interviews for ChemEng so I can still give advice).

Hi you mentioned that neither universities are ICHEME accredited, does this mean that you won’t have a chemical engineer title ?

Hi!
There are lots of great Chemical engineering degrees across the UK My advice would be look into what kind of uni you would want to be in! Whether it be campus-based or city-based for example, the area, life around the university, student satisfaction rates etc. What you think is important in a uni for you is worth looking into, since the degree is a big part of your life for so long

In terms of Scotland, Heriot-Watt is a campus based uni just outside the city of Edinburgh. You're welcome to look into our accredited Chemical engineering degree, its requirements, and ratings here https://www.hw.ac.uk/uk/study/underg...ering-beng.htm

My best advice would be look at different courses and their content (some can differ slightly), the opportunities different unis have whilst studying like placements and international study etc. .

I hope that helps If you have any questions about HW, the course, or campus, please don't hesitate to ask!

-Claire

You will be a chemical engineer just you won’t immediately be an chartered engineer (you’ll have to do a masters or a conversion course) however both are working towards accreditation as they are only in their first year or so so have not been able to be accredited yet. This is from the IChemE website:

“If you’re interested in studying a course that isn’t accredited it may be because the course is new (we’re unable to accredit a course until evidence of the learning outcomes for the first cohort of graduating students are assessed), or because the university hasn’t invited us to assess the course for accreditation.

Studying a course that isn’t accredited doesn’t necessarily mean that the course isn’t credible. Nor does it mean that your child will not be able to become a Chartered Chemical Engineer later in their career – it may just take a bit longer and they might need to submit additional evidence of their technical knowledge.”

Chemical Engineering isnt a competitive subject - so this means that its worth applying for a couple of choices wanting grades above your predicted grades. More advice here - https://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/uni...ity-rejections

Aston - BBB
Queens Belfast - BBB
Aberdeen - BBB
Swansea - ABB-BBB
Lancaster - ABB
Brunel - ABB
Loughborough - ABB
Southampton - AAA
Leeds - AAA

They are BEng but with most universities, you can switch to the MEng course in your second or third year as long as your grades are satisfactory. Just email the university to verify this. If you don't want the BEng-to-MEng route, and you're set on going to a higher-tier university, you can just apply for MEng with a foundation year. I think a couple have such programmes.

Also, a lot of universities in England consider catchment areas. If you're from a region that's considered to be behind academically, your entry requirements will be lower. Depending on the university, I think some will still consider your application.

For Scotland, there are so many amazing top-tier universities that will take your grades for MEng and BEng. Their facilities and departments are just as great as the ones in England. Plus, tuition fee is so much less. Universities like Strathclyde, Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Heriott-Watt are great.

Personally, I'm applying to at least two Scottish universities.

Hi there,

I know it's not in Scotland, but Aston University offers Chemical Engineering BEng as a course. The entry requirements are:

BBB to include Chemistry and Maths at minimum Grade B.

BBC to include Chemistry and Maths at minimum Grade B (with an EPQ or Core Maths at Grade B)

BCC to include Chemistry and Maths at minimum Grade B (contextual offers and for DTUS applicants)


The Chemical Engineering BEng course at Aston is ranked Top 10 in the UK for Engineering: Chemical (Guardian University Guide League Tables, 2022) and is Accredited by the Institution of Chemical Engineers which puts you on the path to acquiring Chartered Chemical Engineer status. You can tailor your final year to your career goals by choosing from a series of optional modules. Some companies Aston graduates have gone on to join include Procter and Gamble, Stone and Webster, BP, ExxonMobil, Kodak, PriceWaterhouseCooper, Unilever, AMEC, British Energy, Kappa, Mowlem, BT, Corus and Pfizer.

Apart from Scotland do you have any specific requirements in a university? any qualities, in particular, you're looking for? You can compare university choices on websites like this one www.whatuni.com and https://universitycompare.com/.

Hope this has helped

Bath asks for the same grades for MEng and BEng - and many other Unis do too, check on their websites.

Bath Chem Eng courses - https://www.bath.ac.uk/courses/under...course-entries
The Placemnt program at Bath is one of the best in the UK - the 5-year MEng with Placement is a good option.
