Application process

  1. Visit our projects page to see which project you'd like to apply for OR contact your proposed supervisor(s) to develop your own project (see projects page for further details)
  2. Once you have decided on a project/supervisor, apply for the MRes Neurotechnology via Imperial College's online application system
  3. State your preferred project(s) or supervisor(s) in your personal statement when you apply

Once we receive your application, it will be sent to your preferred supervisor(s) for review and if they want to take your application further, they will invite you to an interview.  You will be notified of the decision on your application via the College application system.  If you are offered a place, you will need to fulfil any required conditions (eg acheiving a certain grade in your degree, completing an approved English test etc) before you can start the programme.

Visit our FAQ page for help on the application process.

Entry requirements

To apply, you should have (or be working to achieve) an upper second class (2:1) honours degree in an engineering, mathematical or physical sciences subject from a UK academic institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification.  If you have a biological/life sciences background, you may also be considered if you have relevant quantitative skills (eg university-level mathematics, engineering or physical sciences, experience in programming etc) but you should discuss this with your proposed supervisor.

If you have a non-UK degree, you can check the College minimum entry requirements, but note that our MRes entry requirements are normally higher than College minimum requirements.

If English is not your first language, you must also meet the College English requirements. You do not have to take a test before applying, but must pass an approved test before starting the course.
