Description

Advertisement

Our Civil Engineering programme aims to provide graduate engineers with advanced capabilities and in-depth knowledge in a range of specialised aspects of civil engineering. It is also designed to update the technical skills of practising engineers engaged in the planning, design, construction and operation of civil engineering works and to contribute to a personal professional development programme.

This programme is particularly useful in providing the necessary further learning for engineers working in the construction industry who hold related first degrees such as engineering geology or construction management.

English Language Requirements

Take IELTS test

Requirements

A minimum of 60 per cent in an honours degree in civil engineering or equivalent accredited to CEng, or a minimum of 70 per cent in an honours degree in civil engineering accredited to IEng.

Overseas equivalent qualifications are also welcome. Alternatively, at least five years’ relevant industrial experience (preferably codified design) or a professional qualification (for example, CEng). Strength in geotechnical engineering also needs to be demonstrated for this programme.

English language requirements

  • IELTS minimum overall: 6.5
  • IELTS minimum by component: 6.0

We offer intensive English language pre-sessional courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here.

Admission to UK universities often requires that students have completed a recognized Bachelor's degree. International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to UK universities when:

  • You are considered ineligible for admission
  • You need to improve your academic, study, research or language skills
