Materials play an indispensible role in our everyday lives. In order to solve key challenges facing the world such as food and energy shortage, disease, climate change and communications it is essential that economically and environmentally sustainable materials with improved function are developed. Combined with the traditional disciplines, the relatively new research fields of nano- and biotechnology are leading to huge advances in this development. Of course, the discovery of new materials means there is an urgent need for new processes to produce them. Therefore a much greater level of understanding between materials scientists and chemical and biological engineers is required.
The Elite Masters Programme in Advanced Materials and Processes (MAP) is training the next generation of engineers with exactly this philosophy in mind. Organised and supported by 18 leading university research and teaching institutes, the course connects the two traditional areas of study, Materials Science and Engineering and Chemical and Biological Engineering. First-class Bachelor's (or equivalent) graduates with a background in at least one of these or related subjects are strongly encouraged to apply.
We offer a flexible study plan which enables graduates from one discipline to quickly get to know the fundamentals of the other.

You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The TOEFL iBT ® measures your English-language abilities in an academic setting. The test has four sections (reading, listening, speaking, and writing), each with a score range of 0-30, for a total score range of 0-120. Read more about TOEFL iBT ®.Schedule TOEFL®
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
You need the following GPA score:
Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
Studyportals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS, Studyportals offers you the chance to receive up to £10000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
