Every year the Department of Electronics is pleased to welcome students from all corners of Europe - we are one of the top four destinations for european students studying electronic engineering in the UK. The vitally important subject of mathematics is the same in all languages and with a reasonable level of English hopefully you will find the transition to the UK straightforward. Below there is information on common questions you might have, but we are always happy to respond to any enquiries.
EU students pay fees at the 'Home' rate. For the academic year 2012/2013 this is £9,000 per annum. Students are eligible to apply for a Fee loan from the UK government and information on applying for this can be found on the Department for Education and Skills web site. EU students entering our Foundation course should note that fees for the Foundation year of the course are £500-1500. Subsequent years are then eligible for normal Home fees.
Students from outside the UK will not normally be entitled to partake in the student loan scheme operated by the UK government. In order to cover living and accommodation costs for a typical 38 week let, an average student will require about £7000 per annum.
British Universities operate a centralised national scheme for applications (UCAS). Applications for all UK degree courses are made on-line via the UCAS web site. Further information and help on applying through UCAS can also be obtained from any branch of the British Council. All European countries have at least one branch. Contact details can be obtained from the British Council web site.
We are happy to accept the school leaving certificates of all European countries at appropriate grades. We also accept the International Baccaleaureate and the European Baccaleaureate. A strong background in Mathematics and Science is essential.
For those for whom English is not their first language, evidence of proficiency in English will be required. The University also offers courses in English either in the summer vacation preceeding the course or during term time - see the CELT pages. We also have information translated into various languages for your benefit, including Greek, Cypriot, Turkish, Czech, Lithuanian, Estonian, Latvian and Polish.
University accommodation is guaranteed to all first year students. Most students will have the opportunity to spend at least one other year in University accommodation.
We have students of many nationalities in the Department of Electronics and in particular have recently seen undergraduates from countries such as Greece, Cyprus, Italy and Spain.
