Which courses are available through ELCAS?

The NMA offer two degree qualifications through ELCAS – the BSc (Hons) Motorsport Engineering and the MSc Advanced Motorsport Engineering. The BSc can also be accessed as a ‘Top-Up’ qualification where only the final year is studied, enabling those with a relevant Foundation Degree, HND, BTEC or Modern Apprenticeship to skip the first two years.

How do I apply through ELCAS?

Applications for all courses are made via our website. We’ve created a video the help you complete our online application process. ELCAS is simply the route through which you fund your course fees, which by the way, are 40% lower than most University fees!

Once you have completed your application it will be considered, along with any supporting documents and information, by our tutors. It’s really important to include information about any motorsport or general automotive engineering experience, even if it’s been in your spare time or as a hobby. This is the stage at which you will need to make your application via ELCAS.

If your application is accepted, you will receive a welcome email from our Director of Motorsport with details of how to complete your enrolment.
