Course description

Polymeric materials find a huge range of applications, from traditional commodity plastics to specialist polymers used increasingly in pharmaceutical, electronic, and nanotechnology sectors. This course provides specialist options covering the production, processing and applications of polymeric materials, taught by research specialists in the field. A six-month research project and optional industrial placement will provide you with further opportunity to explore your interests in depth.

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2020 will be £9,250 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £24,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
