How to apply
A postgraduate degree will give you a deeper appreciation of your subject and an excellent foundation for further research or a successful career.
We welcome applications for a master's degree any time of year. To maximise your chances of securing a place we advise you apply through the University’s online application system as early as possible in the academic year.
For the Department of Materials, we need two official references and at least one must be academic. Please provide two reference letters on official headed paper. Alternatively, your referees can email directly from their official work/university email address.
If we can provide you with any information or advice to help you make your decision, please let us know.
Our open days give you a glimpse of Manchester life and a feel for our friendly, family-like atmosphere.
