Engineering Pathway

For students who want to study for an MEng in Engineering, but did not do A-Level Physics.

What is the Engineering Pathway?

What is the Engineering Pathway?

Engineering is fundamentally based on Maths and Physics, however, we recognise that not all students choose to take A-level Physics. We want to remove this barrier to obtaining a degree in Engineering, so our Engineering Pathway programme will allow you to study MEng Engineering without the need to do a Foundation Year. You'll get all the support you need to get started on our undergraduate degree programmes.

Eligibility

Eligibility

At present, the Engineering Pathway is only available to Home/EU students.

What to expect

What to expect

You will spend three weeks before the start of your degree course receiving Physics tutoring on campus, including in our state of the art Diamond building, where you’ll combine small group classroom teaching with laboratory sessions. You will build upon your existing Maths knowledge and add some aspects of the Physics A-Level syllabus and learn how to apply these skills to real-world engineering problems. The fourth week of the programme takes place during the University’s Intro Week and you will have optional tutorials.

What it’s not

What it's not

Please note the Engineering Pathway is not an extra exam or module that you have to pass to progress onto the full degree course. This is purely a stepping-stone to give you the skills you’ll need to get started on the first year of our degree programmes.

Fees

Fees

We want to open up engineering to as many students as possible, so there are no tuition fees for Engineering Pathway.

During the Pathway programme, you will stay in University accommodation. There is a £500 accommodation fee for this.  Scholarships are available to female applicants and widening participation applicants to cover the costs of accommodation.

To apply for the Engineering Pathway programme, contact our Admissions Team by emailing meng-engineering-admissions@sheffield.ac.uk. You can also find out more about scholarships from them.

A place on the Engineering Pathway programme does not guarantee that we will be able to make an offer for you to study at the University of Sheffield, so once accepted onto the programme you'll also need to make a normal UCAS application to be considered for an offer to study your chosen degree. You do not have to pass any exams on this course to progress onto your degree, but you will be required to attend all sessions.
