Recognition of professional qualifications outside of the UK

From 1 January 2021 there is an update to the way professional qualifications are recognised by countries outside of the UK.

Read our detailed explanation.


The MRes breaks down into approximately 40% taught modules and 60% research in collaboration with an industrial partner.

Your research project will normally be in one of the areas addressed by the marine technology research groups:

Depending on your previous academic training and the requirements of the project, you may receive formal instruction through taught modules in important areas.

The substantial marine technology research community, including 50 research students, 140 MSc students, six-10 post-doctoral students, six technicians and 16 full-time academic staff, provides you with opportunities to progress your career, whether in industry or academia. 

Our annual Postgraduate Research Conference provides you with an opportunity to share research experience and practise vital presentation skills.

We hold joint meetings of the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA) and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST). You are invited to join these meetings as they offer vital insight into the workings of professional bodies.

Our research students have been very successful at finding employment across a wide range of sectors. Professional institutes hold Newcastle research degrees in high regard when assessing work applications.
