The standard academic entry requirements for an MPhil programme will be a Lower Second class UK honours degree, or international equivalent, in a relevant science or engineering discipline.

At least 6.5 overall with no subtest below 5.5.
At least 90 overall with no subtest below 20. We do not accept 'MyBestScore'.

We also accept successful completion of a pre-sessional English course
run by the University Language Centre to meet our English language requirements.

Some English Language test results are only valid for two years. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
