DEPARTMENT OF MATERIALS UNDERGRADUATE BROCHURE
Colleges taking Materials undergraduates
At present seven colleges take Materials undergraduates, but not all offer both MS & MEM so you should check this in the latest undergraduate prospectus. The colleges are listed below, together with their Web addresses.
Colleges have their own open days and brochures, and you should seek information on these directly from the colleges that interest you. Each college has its own character and traditions, and if you opt to specify a preference, you may like to take this into account. Also you might like to seek more practical information such as the typical number of materials students at the college or the extent and price of accommodation offered. The number of students taken by each college may vary slightly from year to year.
Up-to-date information is given in the undergraduate prospectus and this gives a good overview of all of the colleges, but before applying it is good idea to contact any that interest you. A visit to an open day at one of your preferred colleges is also advisable.

Every college is a microcosm of the University, with students from most subject areas, sports facilities and teams, drama and musical societies etc. No matter what your skills and abilities, you will find a place in college for them. College will be your home during term time and many students maintain strong links with their college after they graduate.
The question of which college to apply to is a cause of concern for many people. If, after researching the colleges, you are still undecided then you could make what is termed an “Open Application“ in which you do not specify a choice of college. In this case you will be allocated a “first choice“ college by an algorithm designed to distribute Open Applicants to colleges most in need of candidates.
All applicants are judged against the same selection criteria, which are given at the end of this brochure. Candidates who are not offered a place at their college of preference are then considered by the other colleges. College tutors make offers to the candidates available to them on the basis of the selection criteria, regardless of the first choice college to which the candidates have applied.
