UK chemical engineering applications up

UK chemical engineering applications up

Published on: Friday, 10 February 2012

Although fees in the UK have risen to up to £9000, causing a general drop in applications, chemical engineering continues to see a rise in demand.  With 11,890 applications, numbers are up by 12.4% on last year at this time, in contrast to an overall 7% drop.  IChemE's Matt Stalker attribures this to the breadth of career opportunities offered by chemical engineering, plus having the third highest graduate starting salary in the UK.  For more, read here.

Fees in Ireland, for all first-time EU citizens, are €2250 per year.  After much public debate, the predicted rise in future years is €250 per year.  Students from the UK and mainland Europe can apply though the Central Applications Office, www.cao.ie, for our course: CR105.
