Course content

This unique interdisciplinary Professional Science Masters programme, developed in partnership between The School of Physics and Astronomy and Leeds University Business School, offers you the opportunity to develop both high level physics competencies and key business management skills.

The programme will be especially relevant to you if you are working in, or seeking a career within, the SME advanced technology sector, where a strong background in both applied fundamental science, and an understanding of commercial and business environments is highly desirable. However, the programme will equally be of value to those seeking a more commercially focussed role in larger organisations.

Employers regularly state that STEM graduates lack commercial awareness - this programme will seek to address this skills deficit.

Information for international students

If English is not your first language, you will be required to produce evidence of a language qualification, such as; IELTS (6.5), IBT TOEFL (92 overall) or PTE (64 overall).

Fees and funding

The School of Physics and Astronomy offers up to 10 partial-fee, Dean's International Postgraduate Masters Scholarships, worth £2,000 each. These awards are open to international candidates who have been accepted for admission on this full-time MSc programme, and who are eligible to pay tuition fees at the full international rate. Eligible applicants will automatically be considered for these awards at the time of application, so are not required to complete an application form.

A number of University scholarships are also available, as well as the Alumni Bursary, which provides a 10% fee discount for students who have previously studied at the University of Leeds.
