EPSRC Doctoral Training Opportunities


Each of the CDTs listed below are able to support students via EPSRC funding. Please refer to the individual websites below for details on how to apply as each may have different timelines and requirements.

For international students, CDTs have access to fee bursaries which they can apply to for those they wish to appoint. This will provide the fee difference between the home and overseas rate and therefore you will be fully funded.

In addition to standard CDT funded students, incorporated and aligned students may also make up the cohort in any given year. Incorporated students are those who are supported by non-UKRI funds, Aligned students are usually self-funding. Further details and definitions are provided on the EPSRC site.

Applications from under-represented groups are strongly encouraged across all CDTs.

General guidance on the application process, including funding, can be found on the Postgraduate Admissions website. Please do take some time to review this site as it provides all the information you need on the admissions process, both pre and post application. 

As CDT awards are limited, applicants are encouraged to apply for all funding they are eligible for by the given deadline indicated by the departments. You can also find further details regarding funding on the University graduate admissions site How to apply for funding | Postgraduate Admissions (
