    BEng Materials Science and Engineering (Year Abroad)


Materials at Swansea is ranked 1st in the UK for student satisfaction, according to the latest National Student Survey (NSS). We are one of the UK’s leading centres for materials teaching and research, with funding from prestigious organisations including Rolls-Royce, Airbus and Tata Steel. As a student on the BEng Materials Science and Engineering (with a Year Abroad) course, you will receive excellent teaching driven by world-class research and strong links with industry.


The entry requirements for the BEng Materials Science and Engineering (with a Year Abroad) are:

BBB at A level

Recommended subjects include:
Further Mathematics
Design Technology

BBB is our standard offer for students who are studying 3 A levels, but we recognise the individual nature of each application and so the standard offer should be viewed only as a guide. In some circumstances we may make different offers or points offers where appropriate.

Or 32 at IB (including two Science or Technology subjects at HL).

Students studying for BTEC qualifications require DDD - DDM in BTEC plus grade B in Chemistry, Physics or Mathematics A level. Students not studying A levels alongside their BTEC qualification, require D*DD - DDD with D in ‘Mathematics for Technicians’, plus minimum GCSE grades of B in Mathematics and 2 x B grades in Science/Engineering/Manufacturing . Studying ‘Further Mathematics for Technicians’ is highly recommended.

Find out the entry requirements for an international student.

Students with industrial experience and qualifications will be considered on a case-by-case basis. If you have studied access or vocational qualifications, you are advised to apply for the Integrated Foundation Year.

If you are applying for Level Two (second year) entry, in order to be considered, you will need to have already covered the topics offered in Swansea at Level One (first year) in a certified qualification, with a high overall score.

Choose Exactly 10 credits from the following Modules:

NOTE : Select one of three modules from Module Group 1. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Chemistry but not Physics they must opt for EGA106. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Physics but not Chemistry they must opt for EGA103. If a student has done A level (or equivalent) Physics and Chemistry they must opt for EG-108. In the unlikely event that a student has no chemistry or physics background they would be best advised to do EGA106.
