Entry Requirements

Applicants are required to have completed a degree in a physical science, or a closely related subject. Relevant industrial experience can be an alternative, subject to references.

We also encourage applications from those from non-traditional backgrounds, for example with relevant industrial experience, in lieu of a degree. Each application will be assessed on its own merits and subject to references.

If you hold a bachelor’s degree or equivalent, but don’t meet our entry requirements, a Pre-Master’s can help you gain a place.
