Programme description

The Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Metallic Systems was established in January 2009, with a £6.3M investment from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). It is a partnerships between The University of Manchester and The University of Sheffield to provide a national training centre for doctoral scientists and engineers in metallurgy and related disciplines.

This programme offers a new direction for PhD study, with an exciting and interdisciplinary approach to postgraduate research training, combining a foundation year to reinforce core skills with a 3-year doctoral level thesis project.

The Centre aims to prepare the next generation of Metallic Materials Engineers with the right skills set for research leadership in a globally competitive market place.

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

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.
