Postgraduate Study

Funding Opportunities

Fully funded studentships (covering home fees + maintenance) will be available, sometimes in conjunction with participating departments or Cambridge Trusts Scholarships. Applicants with pre-settled status are expected to qualify for home level fees if they meet the relevant criteria.

Applicants eligible for Home fees may also be eligible for full scholarships provided by Cambridge Trusts, including the prestigious Harding and Gates scholarships. No separate application is normally needed for these, but applicants must tick the relevant boxes on the main application for admission.

Applicants who are eligible for Overseas fees and are accepted to the programme will be considered for partial funding (home-level fees and maintenance) from the NanoDTC and will also be put forward for various additional funding sources for the home-overseas fee difference. Funding offers will normally be made as a full package.

Some additional external funding sources may also offer full scholarships to applicants who are successful in their competitive selection process. Details of some of these are on our website.
