About the course

This is your chance to build on that undergraduate degree with advanced training and an in-depth research project. Take it and give yourself an edge in the jobs market.
The long menu of bite-sized optional modules means you can cover a lot of ground on this course. And you still get to specialise for your dissertation.
We also teach the techniques and transferable skills you’ll need for a career in industry, including programming with LabView, innovation management and Fortran for engineers.
For the dissertation, you'll carry out a research project of your own and write it up over the summer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
