This programme is ideal for students with industrial experience who wish to work in a specific area, and prefer flexibility to the taught MSc programmes. Flexibility is the key to this programme; it begins with an induction where you are allocated a supervisor and often an industry contact; this sets the direction of your research and identifies training needs. The Graduate School�s research training programme offers a range of sessions to meet those needs. Regular supervision and access to seminar groups, together with interim research reports, ensures good progress towards a final dissertation.

Entry requirements

Upper 2nd Class Honours degree, or equivalent, with strong evidence of excellence in research and writing. Students whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent.

Assessment methods

Assessment is by interim reports with a final dissertation based on the research.

Sponsorship information

The department has an annual MSc by research scholarship scheme generously supported by the Sir John Fisher foundation; this scholarship is open to UK students interested in nuclear or maritime engineering research.
