Chemical Engineering at the University of Birmingham  is a consistently high performer in this respected University ranking, learn more on the Guardian website.

The Guardian’s league tables rank universities according to spend per student, student to staff ratio, graduate career prospects, applicants’ entry tariff, a value-added score that compares students’ entry qualifications with their final degree results and how satisfied final-year students are with their courses, based on results from the annual National Student Survey (NSS). 

The tables are compiled under guidance by an expert review group of professionals from UK universities. The group meets regularly to monitor changes in subject areas and the way data is collected to ensure the Guardian University Guide is as relevant to students as possible.

Professor Mark Simmons, Head of School of Chemical Engineering, said:
This ranking demonstrates that Chemical Engineering at Birmingham has a strong record of training the next generation of Chemical Engineers sought after by industry. As a school, we are particularly proud of the fact that we are ranked 4th in the UK for the percentage of students who have found graduate level jobs or are in further study within six months of graduating.

This high ranking by the Guardian comes shortly after being ranked 5th in the UK for Chemical Engineering by the 2020 Complete University Guide. Please get in touch with our Admissions Team if you are interested in studying at Birmingham.
