    The MEng is an integrated masters degree in engineering that offers you an opportunity to fulfil the educational requirements for Chartered Engineer (CEng) status. The MEng course aims to meet professional development needs as specified by the Engineering Council and relevant engineering institutions in the UK Standard for Professional Engineering Competence (UK-SPEC). Entry to this qualification is either via our BEng (Hons) (B65 or Q65) or an accredited engineering bachelors degree from another institution.

    The MEng must be completed within four years from the date of graduation of the undergraduate degree.

    This qualification is accredited for Chartered Engineer status by the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) and the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE). A pathway through our MEng is also accredited by the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) and the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET).

    Career impact

    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.


    program_requirements

    If you do not hold a qualification from The Open University you will first need to contact the Mathematics, Computing and Technology Faculty. You will be required to provide documentary evidence of your honours degree that shows the date of qualification. In addition you will need to provide evidence that this has been accredited by one of the licensed bodies of the Engineering Council. You can check that your degree has this accreditation by visiting the Engineering Council website. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 TOEFL iBT® test: 87 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

    If you are studying towards a taught masters or doctorate you won't be eligible for financial support towards your module fees or towards most study costs.
