The pre-qualifying year is aimed at those students who do not yet meet our entry requirements. We will not consider students who fail to meet the entry requirements for the MSc e.g. students with a 3rd from a UK university. It is also suited to mature students who while meeting the entry requirements for the MSc have been away from academia for a number of years and wish to bring themselves back up to speed before embarking on the full Masters course. You will study a number course units made up from the various Undergraduate courses on offer within the department, usually 3.5 or 4.0 (a typical Undergraduate student takes 4.0 each year). The choice of the courses will be made in consultation with your MSc Programme Director and will be balanced by your previous experience and what is possible within the confines of the timetable. The first year will follow the normal Undergraduate timetable and you will have the long Summer break. To progress to the MSc proper you must achieve an overall standard equivalent to a Second Class Honours Degree. This equates to an average mark of at least 50%. If you meet this standard to the examiners' satisfaction you will be permitted to proceed to the MSc and asked to return to UCL the following year. If you fail to meet this standard you will not be permitted to proceed to the MSc.

There is no certificate or award for the first year other than your exam transcript. Resits are not permitted. The fees for the pre-qualifying year are similar to those for the MSc.

Continuing Professional Development

CPD and Selected Parts of MSc's

It is possible to attend for just part of our MSc courses, for example the Ship Design Exercise or just one or two modules. On completion you will be awarded a certificate of attendance and will receive no formal qualification from UCL. It can be used for Continuing Professional Development (CPD) or further learning to Masters level as defined under UK-SPEC. Exchange students may also attend selected parts of MSc courses. Applications to attend for part of an MSc are considered on a case by case basis and should be made directly to the MSc Admissions Tutor. Students attending for CPD are still normally required to meet our MSc entry requirements.

A limited number of scholarships are available for UK/EU or overseas students to study at UCL.

These scholarships are however highly competitive and all applicants should indicate what alternative sources of funding they will have available on their application form.

Applicants for the MSc Mechanical Engineering programme may also be eligible to apply for the government funded Aerospace MSc Bursary scheme. This scheme is committed to providing 500 bursaries over the next three years. The scheme will pay MSc tuition fees (up to £9,500) on behalf of successful applicants. Bursaries will be awarded to candidates who can demonstrate their commitment to working in the UK aerospace sector and who have been offered a place on an eligible MSc programme.
