Demand for UK chemical engineering places rises further

Demand for UK chemical engineering places rises further

Published on: Thursday, 05 May 2011

While there are likely to be places available on the accredited chemical engineering course in CIT, the same cannot be said for the UK.  With about 1,800 places (The Chemical Engineer, April 2011), demand is very high.  The latest UCAS data for April 2011 shows that 11,470 have applied for chemical, process and energy engineering.  This is an increase on the 10,784 applications in 2010, itself an increase of 7.1% over 2009, which was itself an increase of 17.6% on 2008 figures.  The prospect of fees does not seem to have dampened enthusiasm for chemical engineering.

Meanwhile, CIT welcomes international students who, if they are citizens of the EU/EEA, will pay only the same charges as Irish students: €2,000 per year.  Potential applicants must proceed through the Irish CAO entry system.  For further information, click to our page for international students.
