The University of Manchester has a rich academic heritage and is one of the world's leading research-intensive universities. It also has a long history of welcoming international students and seeks to continue this tradition by admitting excellent students from across the world. Details of country specific entry requirements are available from the University website
or contact us at mailto:jane.m.orourke@manchester.ac.uk
. We will ask for an academic transcript to enable us to give full consideration to your application.

The University welcomes applicants with the AP qualification. Such applications will be considered on an individual bachelorsis.
The University of Manchester welcomes the introduction of the level 3 specialised diplomas. We look forward to providing guidance regarding progression opportunities and subject and grade requirements when further details on equivalences are published
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: UCAS reference guidelines
Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience. The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
GCSE grade C, IELTS 6.0 with no subtest below 5.5, TOEFL internet bachelorsed test score of 80 with no subtest below 20. Cambridge Proficiency in English Grade C, English for Academic Purposes Grade C, Pearsons Test of English 59 with no subtest below 51
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
Application and selection
Apply through UCAS
.
All applicants are invited to attend an Open Day, at which they will have a brief interview. This is an informal interview and no specific preparation needs to be done for it. For students living overseas, we will arrange a convenient time and date to telephone you (between Monday and Friday, 9am - 5pm GMT) to conduct the interview this way, if the costs of attending an Open Day are too high.
If you have re-sat individual modules to improve your grades, we will consider your application according to the standard selection process. If you are planning to re-sit the final Year 13 examinations, or have already done so, the University will consider your application, but we may require further information in order to make an informed judgment on your application.
If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry.  In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved.  We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Careers
Materials Science and Engineering graduates are highly sought after by employers, and all of our graduates either find employment in industry or go on to higher level study at the end of their degree. Careers include research and development, management positions, and technical roles within both large multinationals and smaller businesses. Companies our recent graduates have gone on to work for include Rolls Royce, Airbus, Jaguar, 3M, Alcoa, and Corus. Other graduates choose to apply their technical and analytical skills in fields such as patent law or accountancy. A Materials Science and Engineering degree also provides an ideal springboard for higher level study (eg towards a PhD), and approximately one third of our graduates follow this route. Careers include research and development roles, management positions and technical sales within large materials manufacturing or end-users. The range of careers include things as diverse as teaching, engineering, consultancy and technical development roles.
