The application process
When to apply
We advise all prospective candidates to apply as soon as possible.
- Recruitment is based on the specialist option you select in the second term (see 'Second term' of the Course structure
- Candidates are required to state their preferred Options (a maximum of two in order of preference) in the personal statement on their form when they apply
For further information about the options please see the Course structure.
The programme entry requirement is a 2.1 in a science, engineering or social science subject. However, for candidates with a 2.2 Honours without work experience, our course has an internal mechanism, under which a request for approval has to be made by the Option Convenor to the Director of the course before an offer is made. A special case will only be valid for someone who has appropriate and relevant additional work or academic experience to compensate for the degree(s) being below the College's minimum entry requirement(s). The department will decide what relevant experience is and the duration or extent that is required to compensate for the requirements that are not fulfilled.
