The 1st period, September to January, is spent at Keele, and the 2nd 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 is given to related programmes; the minimum degree category for entry is 2.2 (or international equivalent), although consideration is 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.
Postgraduate research skills (15 credits); language training (15 credits); research training portfolio (40 credits); research report or dissertation (110 credits).
These include a training record, a reflective report (for the research training portfolio), as well as a dissertation on the project undertaken during the placement.
