Science and Engineering of Materials MRes


Course Description

This EPSRC-sponsored programme comprises a major research project, which can be based in the University or in industry, and six taught modules, four compulsory and two optional.

Applications are welcome from any student who has, or is expecting to achieve, a 2:1 (or above) in their first degree.


We recommend that you start the course at the beginning of the Academic Year (end of September). However, if your undergraduate degree is in Materials Science, then you may start at any time of the year.


Full fees and a stipend of £10,000 are available for
• UK students with a 2:1 degree (or above)
• EU students who have spent the last three years in the UK, and have an undergraduate degree equivalent to a 2:1 degree

Full fees and a contribution of up to £3,000 towards living costs may be available to EU students with a good (2:1 equivalent or above) undergraduate honours degree.

Full fees are available for UK and EU seconded employees (the employers will be required to pay a fee of £2,700 to the Department).
