University of Cambridge
The minimum standard required is a 1st Class Honours or equivalent. A degree in science or engineering will normally be expected but in the past graduates from other disciplines with a strong interest in technology policy have joined the programme. Applicants whose 1st language is not English should have an IELTS minimum overall score of 7.5, with not less than 7.0 in each element; or TOEFL minimum score of 110 (iBT), with not less than 25 in each element; or CAE minimum score of Grade A or B (with at least 193 in each individual element) plus a language centre assessment; or CPE score of Grade A, B or C (with at least 200 in each individual element).
Students will take a total of 6 electives: 2 skills or sectorial electives; 2 stream electives (public sector or private enterprise); and 2 open electives (drawn from other skills, sectorial, and stream electives; or from a select list of other electives). During the final 2 terms students will produce a written report for their final group project, which will be based on a placement at a major public or private sector technology-intensive organisation.
Students are assessed by formal examinations, term papers, regular written assignments, and some assessment of class participation (including bulletin board 'discussion'). The Final Group Project is assessed by a 12,000 word final report produced under faculty supervision.
