Every postgraduate taught course has a detailed programme specification document describing the programme aims, the programme structure, the teaching and learning methods, the learning outcomes and the rules of assessment.
You’ll need a minimum of a lower second-class BEng honours degree (2:2) in civil engineering or an upper second-class BSc honours degree (2:1) in civil engineering. If you have considerable professional experience and can evidence an academic ability to undergraduate degree levels you may also be considered. If you have overseas qualifications you can check your comparability with the UK equivalent through NARIC, who provide an advisory service.
