Modern chemical engineering is a vast subject extending far beyond its traditional roots in oil and gas processing. As well as dealing with chemical reactors, distillation and the numerous processes that take place in a chemical or petrochemical plant, there is an increasing need for chemical engineers able to design and develop formulated products and to have knowledge of biotechnology and environmental issues.
* If you already have a first degree in chemical engineering you can study the discipline in greater depth as well as learning about broader issues through the choice of elective subjects.
* If you are already working in industry or are planning to work in a particular area, then this course can be tailored to focus on issues related to those of direct concern to you.
Who will benefit from the course?
* Those who already have a background in chemical engineering but who wish to obtain a higher level qualification from a top-ranking British university.
* Those who wish to enhance their career prospects in a chemical industry.
What are the benefits to students?
* Our graduates get great jobs and chemical engineers are the highest paid professionals in the engineering field
* Courses are designed to meet the needs of employers and you develop many skills for a successful career - design, problem solving, numeracy, analysis, communication and teamwork
* The University of Manchester has an excellent international reputation and a qualification from us will significantly increase your chances of getting a job anywhere in the world
* Specialist subjects are all taught by experts in the field
* Entry requirements are flexible - relevant experience is considered alongside your formal qualifications
* Courses can be studied full-time or part-time meaning you can fit learning new skills and knowledge around any other commitments
* If you want to enhance your professional development you can take an individual Unit as a shorter training course
The course can be studied full-time or part-time
* The amount of effort required by a student is measured in credits. An MSc requires the completion of 180 credits, a Diploma 120 credits and a Certificate 60 credits.
* Each of the individual Units is also available to study as a shorter training course - a great way to learn new skills and enhance your professional development.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
