University of Cambridge
Materials Science (advanced study)
The course is largely focused on highlighting the latest developments in the subject; many of the lecture courses concern cutting-edge topics and provide a natural springboard for future research, which could be undertaken in industry, research institutes or academia; while the course is certainly not exclusively for those planning a research career, it provides a valuable insight into advanced study of the subject; there are 3 compulsory lecture courses, concerned with experimental techniques, and there is then a choice of 10 from 16 module courses, covering a wide range of advanced topics; further choice between foreign language and management options is available; a major component of the course is the individual research project, undertaken within one of the research groups in the department; in addition to the course fee, students may have to pay a college fee and a university composition fee.
In general, a minimum of a good 2.1 at the UK Bachelor's level, or overseas equivalents.
