    This course aims to provide advanced training in the rapidly expanding field of medical engineering. It is aimed at a range of personnel involved in medical engineering including engineers, surgeons, sales and marketing staff and regulatory personnel, who wish to pursue a career in this sector or are already in employment.

    The course provides students with a broad coverage of this rapidly expanding field whilst at the same time allowing a degree of specialisation through the provision of optional material. Particular emphasis is placed on inter-professional training and the multidisciplinary nature of the discipline, enabling the student to successfully complete complex tasks at the increasingly important interface between engineering and the life sciences.

    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.


    A degree equivalent to either: a) a UK upper second class (2.1) honours degree or higher in engineering, a physical science or mathematics; b) or a medical degree or allied subject with a background in orthopaedics.We also welcome and accept students with a wide range of international equivalent qualifications.English language requirement: A pass at GCSE level in English language (grade C or above). If English is not your first language, you are required to provide evidence of proficiency in English. You will need to meet our minimum requirements for one of the following recognised English language tests: the International English Language Testing Service (IELTS), the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) and the Pearson Test of English Academic.

    Scholarships worth up to £2,000 available. For more information, please visit our website.


    This course is accredited by the Institute of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) under licence from the UK regulator, the Engineering Council.
