Programme description

The research programmes in corrosion and protection benefit from one of the world's largest academic based activities dedicated to corrosion and its control.  We work closely with the world's leading companies, consultancies and industrial research groups to create a forward-looking and strategic research activity.

Industry driven

Corrosion science and technology are key to the development of new materials and innovative production processes for use in industries driven by the need to improve their capital productivity, operational reliability, efficiency, performance and health and safety of the world's physical assets.

Our industry-driven, fundamental and strategic research is organised into four overlapping themes:  corrosion mechanisms, prediction and control; environmental degradation and protection by coatings; high-temperature protection; performance of light alloys.

Open days

Our Open Days provide a great opportunity to take a look at the School, discover more about our courses and research, and find out what Manchester has to offer you.

International students - if you are based overseas and can't make our Open Days, please visit the international section of our website to see if a member of our International Team will be visiting your country soon.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2018, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • PhD (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): Standard £22,000, Low £23,000, High £25,000
  • PhD (part-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): Standard £11,000, Low £11,500, High £12,500

Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
