    In addition, optional modules may be taken from the following list or from other modules from the Schools of Chemistry, Mechanical, Materials & Manufacturing Engineering, Physics and Astronomy, or Pharmacy following discussions with your personal tutor:

    * Surface Engineering and Characterisation
    * Advanced Biomaterial Structures
    * Physical Nanochemistry
    * Surface Processing
    * Capability Management
    * Advance Lab Techniques

    Please note that all module details are subject to change.

    Over the summer period towards the end of the course, you will undertake a 60-credit Nanoscience Research Project.

    Course Structure
    The MSc in Nanoscience is offered on a full-time basis over one year.

    The course content is highly flexible - as well as taking core, compulsory modules, you will be able to choose from a number of optional, approved modules to best reflect your personal interests and career aspirations.

    You will also be expected to complete a Nanoscience Research Project worth 60 credits over the summer months.

    The course is taught jointly by the School of Chemistry, School of Physics and Astronomy, School of Pharmacy and School of Mechanical, Materials & Manufacturing Engineering and comprises taught modules, a dissertation, presentations and experiential learning components.

    Assessment is achieved by a combination of written examinations, coursework, a project report and oral presentations.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
