As there is high demand for this course we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Due to the competition for places, we give preference to students with grades above our minimum entry requirements. If we make you an offer, you will have 6 weeks in which to accept. Any offers not accepted within 6 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate.

Stage 2: Application received by 15.12.19; decision by 1.2.20
Stage 3: Application received by 15.2.20; decision by 1.4.20

You need to ensure that you submit your supporting documents with your application as it may delay us processing your application before the decision deadline.
Whilst we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received, it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next deadline date. If this is the case we will let you know after the deadline date.
Applications received after our final selection deadline will be considered at our discretion if places are still available.
Please note: All places are subject to availability and if you apply at one of the later stages, some courses may already be closed. We therefore recommend that you apply early in the cycle to secure your place with us.
If you have not yet completed your undergraduate studies, please submit your latest transcripts with your online application, together with the other supporting documents, including a list of your final year units and your current average expressed as a percentage, verified by your current institution. We will not be able to assess your application without this information.
Applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place must demonstrate that they have met all the conditions of their offer by 31st July 2020.

Manchester Engineering Campus Development (MECD), the University of Manchester's new £400m purpose built home for engineering and material science, is nearing completion. The physical move to the new development is scheduled to take place between January 2021 and December 2021. Whilst it is anticipated that access to equipment, or work on projects for which such access is required may be limited during the period of the move, plans are underway to ensure that any disruption caused is minimised, a wide selection of dissertation projects will continue to be available, and excellent student experience remains pivotal. If you have any questions about how the move may affect you, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2020, the tuition fees are as follows:
