Chemical or Biochemical Engineering
Once you have sent your application to UCAS, your form will be considered by the Chemical Engineering admissions team. Each application is given individual consideration, paying particular attention to the subjects studied, the reference and the personal statement. Factors such as academic achievement and potential, your skills and aptitudes, and your motivation and commitment will all be considered.
Applications received before the UCAS deadline of 15 January 2012 will be given equal consideration. Applications received after this date may be considered if there are still places available, however as the number of applications per place can be very high, we strongly advise you to apply as early as possible.
A decision will be made on whether to make you an offer as soon as possible, you will be notified by UCAS when this decision has been made.
Gap years are viewed positively by the Department and we are happy to consider applicants who are asking for deferred entry. Please specify on your UCAS form if you wish to be considered for deferred entry.

The Department holds a number of Open Days for UCAS applicants during the year. On the one hand we are able to meet and find out something about the people applying to study in the Department, and on the other hand applicants can meet us and take the opportunity to find answers to specific queries that they may have. We would strongly encourage you to take this opportunity to meet us in person, talk to some of our current students, and at the same time see the University and experience the wonderful City of Bath.
Please note that attendance at one of our Department Open Days is by invitation only. We will normally invite everyone who applies to us to come and visit the Department, however if for some reason you have applied to us and not yet received an invitation to visit, please contact the Admissions Secretary.

All applicants will normally be invited to attend an Open Day, which includes a one-to-one discussion with a member of academic staff.
The Open Day is designed to be informal and provide you with the maximum opportunity to gain a feel for the Department, the people in it, the University and the City. We also want to learn more about you. The interview is not selective or formal, more a chance for you to have a one-to-one discussion with a member of Academic Staff to help resolve any questions or queries.
In normal circumstances, applicants will not be required to sit additional selection tests.
