Programme transfer

All students in the Department initially register for the H401 MEng in Aeronautical Engineering. Under certain conditions they can transfer to our H420 MEng with a Year in Industry or our H410 MEng with a Year Abroad.

The transfer programs are designed to enrich your educational experience, but not all students may benefit equally from a year outside campus and some may even find it challenging. This is why transfer application forms must include a personal statement in which you are expected to think about how you would benefit from the experience.

Important notes

  1. Fees apply for the Year in Industry and the Year Abroad programmes and full details can be found on the Student Finance website.
  2. Students who spend a year abroad or in industry need to be aware that you may miss out on options which run on alternate years.
  3. Please note we do not permit students to do a Year Abroad AND a Year in Industry.
  4. There may be visa implications for any international students on Tier 4 visas wishing to transfer programmes. Please contact the International Student Support BEFORE you request your course transfer so you are fully aware of what is involved. The Department cannot assist you with this and onus is on students to deal with.

Please see links below for full information on the transfer process for relevant programme.

European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)

European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System

Materials studentsThe European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) is an academic credit system for higher education widely used throughout the European Higher Education Area (EHEA). It is a central tool in the Bologna Process, and increases the transparency and understanding of qualifications within the EHEA.

How does ECTS work?

ECTS credits express the volume of learning based on the achievement of defined learning outcomes and their associated workload. The credits you accumulate are transferable, meaning you may be able to use them towards another programme offered by the same institution or by another institution.

The ECTS value of our degrees is displayed on our course pages. The typical credit ranges are 90-120 units for Master’s degrees. The ECTS does not apply to doctoral programmes.
