    MEng Chemical Engineering


As a student on the MEng Chemical Engineering course, you will be prepared to meet the needs of modern process engineering. Modules build on established chemical engineering areas with application to energy, health, food, water and the environment.


The entry requirements for the MEng Chemical Engineering course are:

AAA-AAB at A level (including Mathematics and Chemistry subject).

AAA-AAB is our standard offer for students who are studying 3 A levels, but we recognise the individual nature of each application and so the standard offer should be viewed only as a guide. In some circumstances we may make different offers or points offers where appropriate.

Students studying for BTEC qualifications require DDD - DDM plus B grade at A level Mathematics. Studying A level Mathematics alongside a BTEC qualification is our strongly recommended entry pathway for those studying BTEC qualifications. Students not studying A level Mathematics, alongside their BTEC qualification, require D*DD-DDD with D in ‘Mathematics for Technicians’ and D in ‘Further Mathematics for Technicians’, plus minimum GCSE grades of B in Mathematics and 2 x B grades in Science/Engineering/Manufacturing.

Find out the entry requirements for an international student.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.

If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.
