The course is full-time for 12 months, starting in September; the 1st period, September to January, is spent at Keele, and the period February to August (about 30 weeks) is spent in a international host institution; international students may opt to take their placement within the UK or at Keele University; students submit their final dissertation and portfolio in September.
Usually applicants hold an Honours degree in a scientific discipline appropriate to the project area and final postgraduate award, although consideration will be given to related programmes; the minimum degree category for entry is 2.2 (or international equivalent), although consideration will be given to candidates who do not meet these criteria, but can evidence appropriate, alternative professional qualifications and/or experience; applicants who are not fluent in English are expected to have attained the equivalent of an IELTS score of at least 6.5.
Modules include: postgraduate research skills (15 credits); language training (15 credits); research training portfolio (40 credits); research report/dissertation (110 credits)
Students must complete formal assessment on all modules; during the placement this includes keeping an extensive record of the training attended and skills obtained, with a reflective report (for the research training portfolio), as well as a dissertation on the project undertaken during the placement.
Erasmus funding may be available for students who undertake their research project within an Institute located in a non-UK European Country.
