How to apply
Advice to applicants
We would normally only consider applicants who obtained the relevant qualification within the two years prior to entry. Applicants who have left education for more than two years would normally be recommended to take an Access course. Please contact the Admissions Office to discuss your particular circumstances. You should not usually apply for more than one of the courses offered by The Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering. Students can switch between Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Mechatronic Engineering up until the end of the first year.
Applicants submitting mitigating circumstances. Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your Department or college. We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance will be included in the referee's report. We cannot usually take into account information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting Department. If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the Department to which you applied as soon as possible. Where mitigating circumstances have already been taken into account, for example by the relevant Exam Board, we will not be able to make further allowances.
How your application is considered
Applications are considered on the basis of an assessment of past and predicted academic achievements, the academic reference and personal statement.
The personal statement is your opportunity to tell the admissions team why we should offer you a place here at Manchester. It will be read by an administrative member of staff.
We are keen to hear about you - your interests, hobbies, extra-curricular experiences, career aspirations - and how these have prepared you for success on your chosen course.
All applicants should be aware that information provided in the personal statement may be used as the basis for further discussion during any subsequent interview with an academic member of staff.
Applicants for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year.
Some English language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date.
Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.
If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.
We are unable to accept applications for second year entry with the exception of those coming via our advanced entry programmes with North China Electric Power University, Shanghai University or NCUK.
Please note we do not offer transfers into the third year of our courses.
