UCL (University College London)

Course Introduction

The course enables applicants with a degree in a related subject (for example mathematics, physics or geology) to take a qualifying year before moving into a civil or structural engineering MSc.

Course Modules

Core modules: structural analysis and design; materials ii and applied fluid mechanics ii; mathematical modelling and analysis ii; soil mechanics and engineering geology; civil engineering in practice; structural mechanics iii; civil engineering project.

Course Additional Entry

To be able to progress to fully chartered status students entering the pre'qualifying year should have a degree in a related subject, such as architecture, or in a subject that would be approved by the Institution of Civil Engineers, such as mathematics or physics. General entry requirements and application procedures are the same as for the 1'year Master's programme. When completing your application form you should enter "MSc in Civil Engineering" as the programme title. If you satisfy all admission criteria you will be given a conditional offer, and successful completion of the graduate diploma will be the condition of entry to the main Master's programme. Overseas students requiring a visa to study should note that the graduate diploma (pre'qualifying year) and the civil engineering Master's are treated as 2 separate programmes. You will only be able to obtain a 1'year visa for the graduate diploma and then you will need to apply for a 2nd visa for the Master's. You will almost certainly have to leave the UK between finishing the graduate diploma in June and commencing the Master's in September.
