The School has a thriving postgraduate community and places great emphasis on supporting our students with the right equipment, dedicated resources and appropriate training.
All of our postgraduate courses incorporate training in professional skills and Research Methods, and most of our Science courses offer opportunities to carry out research projects in industry or at other research institutes.
NTU is one of the few universities in the UK to offer paid industry placements on MSc courses. The placements we offer to postgraduates studying MSc courses last up to one year and are sandwiched within the Masters degree.
They enable students to gain vital experience in the workplace and develop important skills while
pursuing an academic specialism. We offer extensive support in obtaining a relevant placement, including language support for international students.
