It is possible to take the MSc in Diamond Science and Technology as a stand alone degree (see brochure). No EPSRC funding is available for the stand alone 1 year Diamond Science and Technology MSc. However, funding is possible by a range of mechanisms including university scholarships, an external scholarship or by self/family funding. A comprehensive list of scholarships for taught masters study can be found through the international office who highlight the opportunities from all over the world. If you are applying for (or have successfully obtained) external funding you should inform us (DST dot admin at warwick dot ac dot uk), even if this is after you submitted your application.
Applications are managed through the University's central graduate school admissions process. To apply for the MSc in Diamond Science and Technology, complete the online application form. After completing the form, if you have provided us with an email address for your referees, they will automatically be sent a request for a reference. It is therefore critically important that their email address is correct. You can also download reference forms to pass on to your referees. If paper references are submitted then signed references on headed notepaper are required from the institution to which your referees belong.You will also need to submit original transcripts from your undergraduate degree(s) (or officially certified copies thereof). For candidates yet to graduate, offers of studentships are dependent on them obtaining at least the equivalent of a UK 2ii degree.
In addition, if your first language is not English, you will also need to submit evidence of your competency in English (IELTS 6.5 or equivalent required). The University offers pre-sessional language training support, which also allows you to get used to the campus, learn about the UK Higher Education system and the way we do things here. For more information see the Pre-sessional Course pages of the Centre for Applied Linguistics.
Supporting documents can be submitted during the application process or can be sent electronically through the graduate school portal.
Your application will be passed to the course directors who will decide if you will receive an offer of a place. This will take effect from the following September/October.
