Research Programmes (MPhil/PhD/EngD)
Graduates with at least an upper second-class Honours degree or a graduate Master’s qualification in a suitable science or engineering discipline are eligible to apply. Candidates offering relevant industrial experience in addition to, or partly in place of, academic qualifications are also welcome to apply.
Taught MSc Programmes
Normal entry requirements are at least a second-class Honours degree from a UK university or the equivalent from an approved overseas institution. Candidates offering recent industrial experience in place of academic qualifications are encouraged to apply.
As with any engineering discipline numeracy skills are important for the quantitative description of biological and physical phenomena. Evidence of numerical ability is requested as either an A level in Mathematics (or in exceptional cases, in Physics) or some mathematics studied at university. The department provides mathematics tutoring for Master’s students throughout the year adjusted to a candidate’s ability.
Applications from graduate scientists are normally from candidates holding qualifications in applied biology, biochemistry, biotechnology, chemistry, microbiology, pharmacy or other related subjects. Applications from graduate engineers are normally from candidates holding qualifications in chemical engineering, process engineering or other related subjects. For the graduate biochemical engineer’s pathway applicants will have a degree in the field or closely related subject.
There are typically up to 30 full-time places available each year. Both degree programmes are 12 months in length and begin in late September.
