Full entry requirements
Academic entry qualification overview:
The standard academic entry requirement for an MPhil or PhD is an Upper Second Class UK Honours degree or international equivalent in a relevant science or engineering discipline, or a first degree with an additional UK Masters degree or international equivalent.
The school may require a First Class Honours degree or international equivalent for some research projects. This requirement is specified at the discretion of the academic supervisor involved.
Whilst the most common first degree is Computer Science, we also consider students with backgrounds in an appropriate subject for the research topic (eg mathematics, physics, engineering, biology and medicine).
English language: Students whose first language is not English need to achieve a minimum of IELTS 7 (with 7 in writing), Cambridge Proficiency minimum level C or TOEFL iBT 100+ (24 in writing). Students who have been in full-time education in the UK for 3 years are exempt from this requirement. More detailed information about English language requirements is available here.
Other international entry requirements: We accept a range of qualifications from different countries. For these and general requirements including English language see entry requirements from your country.
