Applicants must have completed a bachelor's degree or the equivalent before beginning graduate study. December 15, of each year for all degree programs in Applied Physics and Materials Science.
If your application is referred to another option, you will not be charged additional fees nor be asked to submit a duplicate application. For further information about graduate study in the Applied Physics and Materials Science Options, please contact: Jennifer Blankenship Applied Physics and Materials Science Dept.
The most competitive international applicants whose schools offer the IGSCE curriculums usually present three A Level exams (the physics exam is required) with grades of at least an A or B.
Competitive applicants whose schools offer the IB curriculum will have scores of 6 or 7 on their IB exams, including their "predicted" grades.
In addition, international students should supply the following: We accept applications from students who have completed the approved curriculum provided by their home countries.
These include, but are not limited to, the IGCSE, O, AS, and A Level curriculums; Cambridge Pre-U, AP, IB, and local public options may be considered as satisfying high-school course requirements.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply online, however, you may request a paper application through the Graduate Office.
