Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

A degree equivalent to a UK upper second class honours (2:1), or higher, in a physical science, engineering or a biological science.

Tuition Fee


A full standard studentship consists of academic fees, together with a maintenance grant paid at standard Research Council rates and a Research Training Support Grant.

Generally, UK students will be eligible for a full award and other European Union applicants will be eligible for an award paying academic fees and Research Training Support Grant only, except in cases where residency in the UK has been established for more than 3 years prior to the start of the programme of study.

Places are available for students who have their own funding.

StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
