General entry requirements
To apply to the programme you must have a 1st or 2:1 in either an undergraduate honours degree or an integrated master’s degree, in a pure or applied science subject. The degree subject must be relevant to the specialism for which you are applying. Science degrees related to medicine may also be considered suitable for some of the specialisms.
However you may also apply if you have a 2:2 honours degree in any subject and you also have a higher degree in a subject that is relevant to the specialism you wish to apply for.
If you haven’t yet received your degree results when making your application, you will need to provide us with your predicted results. Your predicted results must still be a 1st or 2:1 otherwise your application will not be considered. If your final results do not meet these requirements any offers made will be withdrawn. When you have received your final degree result, please email us to confirm your grade within 5 days of being notified by your university.
Any postgraduate qualifications that have been included in your application must have been successfully awarded by the start of the programme.
Skills and knowledge
Review the job description and person specification to make sure that you have the skills and knowledge required for the specialism you wish to apply for. Make sure you add any work experience, including voluntary work, to the supporting information section of the application.
Evidence of any research experience is also desirable. This can be in the form of a higher degree or equivalent evidence of a scientific/academic basis. Postgraduate diplomas and postgraduate certificates are not accepted. Visit the Frameworks for Higher Education Qualifications of UK Degree Awarding Bodies (Level 7 – page 17) for a definition of what is a higher degree.
