Programme description

The School encompasses an exceptional breadth of research and training in materials, from design and development, to performance and protection and management and marketing. The School's activities are built on its global reputation for excellence in research and teaching, reflected in the award of a Queen's Anniversary Prize for outstanding postgraduate training and research in Corrosion and Protection. This, together with close industrial links, provides graduates with an excellent launch-pad for their future careers.

A number of specialist School research centres have been established, providing a focus on specific research areas involving nuclear science and engineering, metal/polymer and composite characterisation, aerospace technology and innovative knitted materials.

Fees

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

  • MPhil (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
    International students (per annum): Standard £22,000, Low £23,000, High £25,000
  • MPhil (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.
