Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MSc (full-time)
  • UK/EU students (per annum): £11,000 
  • International students (per annum): £23,500

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.

Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.

Entry requirements

English language

Students will need to be able to demonstrate competency in the English language and students who do not already possess a recognised English Language qualification will need to take a test such as IELTS. In your IELTS examination you will be required to achieve at least 6.5 overall with at least 6.0 in all sub-tests.

English language test validity

Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

Normally students will need a UKVI IELTS to gain entry on to a Pre-sessional English course. If you wish to apply for a Pre-sessional course and you do not have a UKVI IELTS, please contact The School of Materials for further information at .

Other international entry requirements

We accept a range of qualifications from different countries. For these and general requirements including English language see entry requirements from your country .

Application and selection

How to apply

Apply online  

As there is high demand for our courses we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Due to the competition for places, we give preference to students with grades above our minimum entry requirements.  If we make you an offer, you will have 8 weeks in which to accept. Any offers not accepted within 8 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate. 

  • Stage 1: Application received by 1.11.18; decision by 21.12.18
  • Stage 2: Application received by 1.1.19; decision by 22.2.19
  • Stage 3: Application received by 1.3.19; decision by 19.4.19
  • Stage 4: Application received by 1.5.19; decision by 14.6.18

You need to ensure that you submit your supporting documents with your application as it may delay us processing your application before the decision deadline.

Whilst we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received, it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next deadline date. If this is the case we will let you know after the deadline date.

Please note: All places are subject to availability and if you apply at one of the later stages, some courses may already be closed. We therefore recommend that you apply early in the cycle to secure your place with us.

We can accept your application before you complete your undergraduate studies; you need to submit your latest transcripts with your online application, together with the other supporting documents. You will also need to include a list of your final year units and your current average expressed as a percentage, verified by your current institution.

Advice to applicants

If you are made an offer, in order to confirm your place you will be required to complete and return an acceptance form along with a deposit payment of £1,000 on or before the deadline date stated in your offer letter.

We ask for the deposit as competition for places is high and there is limited availability. The deposit amount is then deducted from your tuition fees when you register on the course.

Once we receive your payment, your place on the course will be confirmed.

The deposit is non-refundable, except in the following situations:

  • You fail to meet the conditions of your offer
  • You are refused a visa or entry clearance to enter the UK
  • Your application for government funding has been unsuccessful

Evidence must be provided before a refund will be processed under any of the circumstances above.

If your offer specifies an academic condition, the Admissions Team will require official university documentation as evidence that you have not met the condition from the institution at which you studied.

Teaching and learning

The course is delivered through a mix of lecturing, blended small and small group tutorials.

We use a range of teaching and learning methods, including tutorials, workshops, seminars and research projects. These are supported by an e-learning infrastructure that includes on-line feedback, lecture and lab podcasting and close academic supervision.

Find out more by visiting the   postgraduate teaching and learning   page.

  • written reports
  • oral presentations
  • examinations
