Entry Requirements

For all Engineering and Materials MSc programmes we require

  • a  good second class degree or the equivalent international undergraduate degree*
  • one reference from your academic institution‡
  • a CV or resumé
  • a statement of purpose
  • an official transcript of your first degree of studies from your undergraduate university, with an English translation (if needed).
  • proof of English at IELTS 6.5 (if needed).  Please see our admissions pages for further details.

Your first degree should be in an area relevant to the MSc you intend to pursue.

Engineering programmes: We expect applicants to have completed an engineering undergraduate degree, normally mechanically-based.

Materials programmes: We normally expect students to have an undergraduate degree that is Materials based, or has a strong physical sciences content.

Conversion programmes: These programmes are appropriate for students with a science-based undergraduate degree, but all applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis to assess eligibility.

Dental Materials MSc: We require a minimum of an upper second class degree in dentistry or a materials science-based programme.

We particularly welcome applications from students with a background in life sciences, medicine or dentistry, physical sciences (Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Materials Science) or Engineering. If you are in doubt over the applicability of your existing qualifications to your degree of interest please contact us for more details or apply online for a decision, by following the "Apply Online" tab on the programme that interests you. 




*Dental Materials requires a 2:1 or equivalent.

‡The reference should come from an academic who can speak of your abilities.
