The masters course in Polymer Materials Science and Engineering, offered in partnership with the School of Chemistry, is multi-disciplinary: it provides Chemists, Materials Scientists and Engineers with a rich understanding of both traditional commodity plastics and speciality polymers with increasing applications in the biomedical and pharmaceutical fields, and in electronics and nanotechnology. The full range of issues, from fundamental polymer science, through polymer processing, to manufacturing are all covered.
The full MSc programme is made up of six taught course units and a five month research project. The taught units are:
- Control and Design of Polymerisations
- Polymer Characterisation
- Structure and Mechanical Properties of Polymers
- Polymer Processing
- Surface Engineering and Materials Design
- Soft Matter and Nanotechnology (option)
- New Directions in Polymerisation (option)
- Technical Textiles (option)
You will need a UK 2.2 Honours degree in a Science, Engineering or Technology field, or equivalent International degree.
If you do not meet the minimum requirements and / or have a mix of other postgraduate or professional qualifications and relevant work experience, then your application will be considered for the progressive entry route, which means that you will be registered for the Certificate or Diploma level and you will be assessed at the end of each level before you progress to the next stage.
|TOEFL paper-based test score :||570|
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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.
A good way for you to start exploring your masters funding options is to ask staff in your subject area for advice on how previous international students have financed their studies.
You should also contact the ministry of education or education department along with the British Council office in your own country. The location of your nearest British Council office can be found on the British Council website.
Before you start your search for funding you should consider the following:
Funding opportunities are very competitive and are generally given to students that have achieved outstanding academic results and submitted high-quality applications.
The application process for funding opportunities can start very early in the admissions cycle, so you should start looking for funding opportunities 12 to 18 months before you intend studying.
If you need a visa to study in the UK you will need to prove to the immigration officer that you are able to meet both the tuition and living costs which may take the form of bank account information and/or a letter confirming sponsorship.
Our funding opportunities database contains details of the major international student award schemes offered by the British government and other organisations, as well as a number of awards offered by the University and its Faculties and Schools.

In addition, funded studentships attached to specific research projects are advertised in more detail on academic School websites. Some of these studentships are not available to international students, and you should check your eligibility before making an application.
