EPSRC Doctoral Training Opportunities


How to Apply

EPSRC DTP funding is allocated directly to departments to support students, please refer to the individual websites below for details on how to apply as each department may have different timelines and requirements.

Potential applicants, who must normally meet the University's minimum requirements for postgraduate studies, should please review the information provided on the relevant Departmental websites (see below) on how to apply, as well as the general guidance on the application process, including funding, which can be found on the Postgraduate Admissions website.

For international students, departments have access to fee bursaries which can be used to support those they wish to appoint: this will provide the fee difference between the home and overseas rate for up to 30% of the overall DTP cohort.

As DTP awards are limited, applicants are encouraged to apply for all funding they are eligible for by the deadline indicated by departments.

The University is actively addressing identified under-representation of particular groups within postgraduate study. This includes Black BritishBritish Bangladeshi, and British Pakistani, as well as all ethnicities from low-income backgrounds.

Mature students, those with caring responsibilitiesfirst-generation students (parents or immediate care-givers did not go to university) and students who have experienced being in care, as well as women in the Schools of Technology and Physical Sciences, are also identified as currently being under-represented.

Students from all of these under-represented groups are particularly encouraged to apply.
