Postgraduate Admissions

Funding Opportunities

Applicants who apply before the beginning of April 2023 may be considered, subject to residency criteria, for a small number of EPSRC (DTP) doctoral training studentships. The majority of these will be offered to Home* students, but a small number may be offered to outstanding International* students.

To be classed as a home student, candidates must meet the following criteria: be a UK National (meeting residency requirements) or have settled or pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements) or have indefinite leave to remain or enter (meeting residency requirements). If a candidate does not meet the criteria above, they would be classed as an International student.
