Choosing the correct course can be difficult! Especially considering the wide variety of courses we offer.
The first step in deciding the right course for you is selecting the discipline you want to study. You should pick amongst these 4 options:
- Materials Science and Engineering or Metallurgy (J5F2, JJ25, F2H1, J200)
- Mechanical and Materials Engineering (HJ35, HJ53)
- Nuclear Science and Materials (H821, H822)
- Sports and Materials Science (CF62)
The courses listed within these groups are identical in Year 1 and Year 2. This means you will be able to change at any point during the first two years. For example, if you are registered for J5F2 (BEng in Materials Science and Technology), you will be able to switch to JJ25 (BEng in Metallurgy) up until the end of Year 2. Similarly, you do not have to decide now whether you wish to do a 3-year or 4-year course, as you will be able to switch between our 3-year and 4-year programmes at the end of Year 2. In order to qualify for a 4-year programme, you must obtain a weighted average of 55% at the end of Year 2.
Other transfers between the courses offered by the School may be possible, but these are exceptional and occur at the disgression of the School's Head of Education. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the admissions team.
