The MSc Process Systems Engineering programme will provide you with the skills required for a successful career in the process industries and is aimed at graduates of engineering, science or related disciplines. The programme will train you in general and specialist process systems engineering subjects. Such areas are not generally covered in engineering and science curricula and graduates tend to be ill prepared for the systems challenges they will face in industry or academia upon graduation.
The programme provides high-quality education with substantial intellectual challenges, commensurate with the financial rewards and job satisfaction when venturing into the real world. It also makes you aware of current technologies and trends based on rigorous training in matters relating to the fundamentals of the subject.

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.
