Academic entry qualification overview
We require a good Upper Second Class Honours degree or international equivalent in any of the following: electrical and electronic engineering, mechanical engineering, engineering, physics, or equivalent scientific discipline which includes a significant mathematical or engineering content.
Applicants will be considered with alternative qualifications who also have appropriate industrial experience.
To progress to the second year of this course, we usually require performance at Distinction level. Students who do not meet the criteria to progress to the second year will instead graduate with the one-year Renewable Energy & Clean Technology MSc or an alternative appropriate qualification.
When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average with particular emphasis on relevant course units and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification.
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 2022.
All applicants to the University (from the UK and Overseas) are required to show evidence of English Language proficiency. The minimum English Language requirement for this course is either:
- IELTS at least 7.0 overall with no subtest below 6.5, or;
- TOEFL iBT : at least 100 overall with no subtest below 25. We do not accept 'MyBestScore'.
- Pearson PTE (UKVI) : at least 76 overall with no subtest below 70.
- An acceptable equivalent qualification.
Please note that if you hold English as a second language iGCSE qualification, we may also require you to offer one of our acceptable equivalent English Language qualifications or achieve a higher grade in your iGCSE than the one stated above. Please contact the academic School for clarification.
The UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) requires that every student from outside the UK and the EU must show evidence of a minimum level of English Language in order to be granted a UK visa (Tier 4 visa) to study at undergraduate or postgraduate level. This level is often referred to as the 'B2 level'.
Additionally, our individual Schools may ask for specific English Language proficiency levels that are necessary for their academic programmes. In most cases these requirements are likely to be higher than the B2 level.
