How do I apply?
Apply online via the MRes Neurotechnology page of the postgraduate prospectus.
Before applying you need to choose your MRes research project:
- visit our projects page page to choose a project OR, if none of the advertised projects is suitable for you,
- visit our Neurotechnology supervisors and Bioengineering academic staff pages and contact your preferred supervisor(s) to discuss a different project.
State your preferred project(s) and/or supervisor(s) in your personal statement when you apply. If you are interested in more than one project, please tell us your order of preference.
Visit our FAQ page for help on the application process.
Typically, we require a degree in an engineering, mathematical or physical sciences subject at a level equivalent to a UK First Class or Upper Second Class Honours degree. This is generally higher than the college Postgraduate minimum academic requirements. If you have a biological or life sciences background we can usually consider you if you have a reasonable standard of mathematical ability. If you are in doubt, please check the MRes Neurotechnology programme specification 2020-21 and discuss your background with your proposed supervisor, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Applicants should note that meeting the minimum academic requirement does not guarantee you will be made an offer of admission.
There is now an application fee of £80 for master's programmes, including the MRes. To find out more, including whether you qualify for a waiver, please visit the College's application fees webpage.
Applications for this course will be considered in two rounds with separate deadlines:
- 1 March 2021. If you submit your application by this deadline, you can expect a decision by mid-April. If you are applying for a specific advertised project you should apply by this deadline.
- 5 July 2021. All applications received after Round 1 are reviewed on a rolling basis up until this second and final deadline. Any specific projects not filled in Round 1 will be re-advertised in Round 2.
We advise applicants to apply early as the limited number of places might be allocated before the deadlines are reached.
What happens after I apply?
Your application will be reviewed by the MRes project supervisor. If they want to take your application forward, they will invite you to an interview. You will be notified of the outcome of your application or interview 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) before you can start the programme.
