    This conversion programme offers pathways of 12 and 20 months for graduates in civil engineering and other numerate disciplines. Both pathways include two semesters of taught content and project work. If you are successful in gaining a sponsor, this will be followed by an 11-month industrial placement, during which you will be expected to fulfil the role of a graduate civil engineer.

    Careers: Our students have secured industrial placements with Bovis Lend Lease, Capita Symonds, Carillion, Clancy Docwra, the Environment Agency, Gifford Consulting Engineers, John Sisk & Son and Mott MacDonald

    Modules must be selected from at least three of the following areas: Coastal engineering; Environmental engineering; Infrastructure engineering; Management; Transport engineering

    Compulsory module: Understanding civil engineering (for non-civil engineering students)

    Assessment: Coursework, examination, individual research project, industrial placement, reflective coursework

    Duration: 1 year (full-time) non-industrial placement pathway; 20 months (full-time) industrial placement pathway

    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.


    Upper second-class BEng/BSc honours degree or equivalent in a relevant engineering/ science/technology subject. Applicants with lower academic qualifications but extensive experience in the civil engineering sector are encouraged to apply. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 TOEFL paper-based test score : 580 TOEFL iBT® test: 92 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.
