2 Chemical, process & energy engineering reviews at University College London (UCL)
Engineering (Chemical), BEng Hons
Adding to before, there are Chemical Engineering universities that charge the same amount as UCL that actually care about you and want to teach you, and will treat you like a person. I have Asperger's and needed an extra type of support (that wasn't needed at A-Level because people actually bothered to guide us) which the department declined every time I asked, which is discrimination and breaking the law. My personal tutor quickly formed a low opinion of me and held it throughout my time at the Uni. They even once verbally harassed me and my Mom and strongly encouraged me to quit. I've spoken to the head of department and even wrote to the President of UCL (whose speciality is medical related), and the former didn't really care, and the latter hasn't even replied after more than a year. Job prospects for Chem Eng at UCL aren't even that good on the league tables, and the department scores highly in entry requirements and postgraduate research, but very poorly in student satisfaction.
Engineering (Chemical), MEng Hons
DO NOT COME TO THIS UNI! UCL has been the worst experience I have ever had! As an MSc student the facilities available are terrible, the support from lecturers are terrible! Throughout my exam period I have contacted my lecturers for support and 3 out of 4 ignored my emails and 1 of them replied saying he cannot offer help. It is an absolute waste of money. The teaching is poor, and the lecture notes available are horrendous! It really comes down to your own knowledge and effort when it comes to revising for exams. As a MSc chemical Engineering student I expected to have good communication and availability in dedicated study spaces, however this was not the case. I would advise not to attend this university, as you will be very disappointed and depressed. The expectation from some modules are far beyond what is being taught. One of my modules I was being taught one thing and being tested on something far beyond and deeper than what we had learnt and covered throughout the course.
