    This degree is one of three undergraduate degrees in the Department. It is designed to prepare you for employment in nuclear or related industries, with a range of specialist modules in years three and four. You will also be encouraged to carry out project work relevant to nuclear power and every effort will be made to find you a relevant placement in the summer vacation period between the third and fourth year.

    The first two years are shared by all three degrees, and cover basic science and mathematics and how they apply to practical engineering problems. During this time you will analyse a variety of chemical processes, and learn about the many ways of contacting, reacting and separating different gases, liquids and solids on a large scale.

    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-LEVELS

    All applications that meet the minimum grade requirement of A*AAA or A*A*A will be considered.

    Actual offers may vary and the majority of offers are A*A*AA to include:

    • A* in Mathematics
    • A* or A in Chemistry
    • Remaining A-levels in relevant subjects including Physics, Biology, Further Mathematics, and Economics

    We also consider GCSE achievements, or their equivalent.

    For students following the International Baccalaureate, all applications that meet the minimum grade requirement of 39 points overall will be considered. This should include:

    • 7 in Mathematics at higher level
    • 6 in Chemistry at higher level
    • 6 in Physics, Biology or Economics at higher level

    Actual offers may vary and the majority of offers typically require an overall score of 41 points overall, to include:

    • 7 in Mathematics at higher level
    • 7 or 6 in Chemistry at higher level
    • 7 or 6 in Physics, Biology or Economics at higher level

    OTHER QUALIFICATIONS

    We also welcome applications from candidates attending Baccalaureate (International, European and French), Scottish Advanced Highers or Irish Leaving Certificate qualifications.

    ENGLISH LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS (ALL CANDIDATES)

    All candidates must have a minimum English language qualification of at least grade B at GCSE or a grade of 6.5 with a minimum of 6.0 in each element in the IELTS exam. We also accept other English language qualifications.

    We also conduct interviews in south-east Asia for our applicants there.
