How Do I Apply?

The Radar Masters Programme runs from January to December each year, with most of the courses concentrated in the first half of the year.

The two core courses (Introduction to Radar, and Mathematics for Radar and Electronic Defence) are presented every year, but some of the other courses are only offered every alternate year.

It is advisable to apply in September, to attend the courses of the following year.

For more information about the different types of registration available in connection with the Radar Masters Programme, please see the Degree Structure.

Continuing Professional Development (CPD) Courses

If you would like to benefit from the courses, without having to sit the exams or pass the courses, you can attend as a CPD student.

If you complete the lectures for the course, we give you a letter to show that you have completed the course, but it will not appear on your academic record.

Information about the application procedures for CPD courses can be found here: Continuing Professional Development Courses.

Occasional Postgraduate Registration

You can register as an occasional postgraduate student for individual courses, for non-degree purposes.

For busy people who work in industry, but who would like to register for a Masters Degree, the option exists to pass some or all of the 6 courses over 2 or 3 years, whilst continuing to work in industry. The credits passed as an occasional student can be transferred into the degree, which is completed when you have completed the minor dissertation (60 credits). The option also exists to take 60 credits (3 courses typically) and complete a larger dissertation of 120 credits to obtain a MSc(Eng) degree.
