The standard academic entry requirement for PhD, or an MPhil is an Upper Second Class UK Honours degree or international equivalent in a relevant science or engineering discipline. Students with an additional UK Masters degree or international equivalent are also eligible. The school may require a First Class Honours degree or international equivalent for some research projects. This requirement is specified at the discretion of the academic supervisor involved.
Relevant Degree Subjects The most common first degree is Computer Science, but these are not the only first degrees we seek. Others include: Computer Science, Mathematics, Physics and Engineering.
Other backgrounds are sometimes relevant, particularly when some experience of computation has also been acquired.
