MSc Structural Engineering / Application and selection

Year of entry: 2020

How to apply

Applications to this course are considered through a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year that will benefit applicants. 

This is a competitive application process and preference will be given to applicants with grades above our minimum entry requirements. Applicants to the Structural Engineering course are expected to demonstrate that they have a strong academic background in structural mechanics and design.

If we make you an offer, you will have 6 weeks in which to accept.  Offers that are not accepted within the 6 week period will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate in the next application stage.

Stage 1  : Application received by 03/11/19; decision communicated between 09/12/19 - 13/12/19

Stage 2  : Application received by 08/12/19; decision communicated between 27/01/20 - 31/01/20

Stage 3  : Application received by 19/01/20; decision communicated between 23/03/20 - 27/03/20

Stage 4  : Application received 22/03/20; decision communicated between 18/05/20 - 22/05/20

We will aim to give you a decision on your application in the decision period for your application stage.  However, in some instances it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next stage due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received.  We will contact you with an update on your application in the decision period if this is the case.

Please note: All places are subject to availability and some courses may close before the later stages.  We therefore recommend that you apply early in the admissions cycle to secure a place with us.  Applications received after the final deadline of 22/03/20 may be considered at our discretion if places are still available.

Applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place must demonstrate that they have met all the conditions of their offer of study by 31/07/20.

Advice to applicants

The following documents must be submitted with the application:
  • Latest transcripts of study showing all modules completed including credit weighting and grades achieved
  • If you have not yet graduated, a list of the modules that you will be completing in the final year of your degree together with their credit weighting
  • An official document from your university verifying your current weighted average mark if this information is not included in your transcript of study. Please note : this must be recorded as a percentage, not as a GPA grade, and must give the weighted average mark, not an arithmetic average mark
  • Two references that are dated, on official letterhead paper, and signed by the referee.

You must submit all these supporting documents with your application; if any of the above information is missing, this will cause a delay and may mean that your application will be rolled forward to the next stage or withdrawn.
