Entry requirements

  • A first or good second class Honours Degree from a UK academic organisation in a relevant engineering field, science or closely related discipline.
  • Qualifications from outside the UK or a combination of qualifications and/or experience will also be considered. The course administration office can provide advice on whether these qualifications are the equivalent of the level of Honours Degree required.
  • We will consider that completion of 2 years (full time equivalent) of relevant postgraduate work experience will enhance a first degree by one step (five years experience by two steps, etc).
  • Employment is considered relevant either to the first degree or to the proposed course of postgraduate study. For example, a graduate in computer studies who has been employed as a computer programmer will have relevant employment experience. (Employment undertaken before the commencement of undergraduate study will not normally count for the purposes of enhancement).
  • Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to provide evidence of an English language qualification. Find out more about our English language requirements

Information on visas for international students


Aston’s long-established MSc in Telecommunications Technology programme is organised by the Electronic Engineering subject group in cooperation with the telecommunications industry via an industrial steering committee. The programme is designed to develop or update a wide range of technical understanding, engineering “know-how” and professional skills that are needed to contribute effectively to the design and development of telecommunications systems for national and international networks, or to enter telecommunications research. The programme is involved in the ERASMUS exchange scheme with a well established link with ENST Brest. Graduates of this programme are highly regarded; many of our past students have risen to senior posts within the telecommunications sector.

Taught modules and examinations/assessments are completed during the six months October to March. After successful completion students may then progress to the six month individual research project during April to October.
We endeavour to place students with industrial sponsors for the duration of their projects, with all other projects being undertaken at the University.
