To be able to enrol as a student at M2A there is criteria set out by our funders which you must meet. They are:

The Student must be a UK or EU citizen (ie eligible for ‘home’ tuition fees at the university) and have the right to work in Wales at the end of their studies.

The Student must be resident in West Wales and the Valleys (area highlighted in dark pink on map opposite) upon enrolment and throughout the duration of their studies.

The candidate must have an Engineering or Physical Science degree (minimum level 2:1), or a combination of degree and equivalent relevant experience to the same level to join the M2A community of research engineers.

The research topic must fall within the advanced materials and manufacturing sector.

The student must not be financially able to participate without the award of grant funding.

Additionally, if you are currently studying towards a non-UK qualification or hold a non-UK qualification we would normally expect you to have met the English Language requirements by point of interview. The University’s English Language entry requirements can be found here. Please note that Swansea University accepts SWELT as an alternative to IELTS for entry to postgraduate programmes.
