Applicants should have obtained, or be about to obtain, a First or Upper Second Class UK Honours degree, or the equivalent qualifications gained outside the UK. Applicants with a Lower Second Class degree will be considered if they also have a Master’s degree.
Applicants with a minimum Upper Second Class degree and significant relevant non-academic experience are encouraged to apply.
The Doctoral Training Partnership welcomes applications from both UK and EU applicants; however, as a consequence of the EU referendum result, final award decisions will depend on the outcomes of the UK/EU negotiations.
Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. To be eligible for the full award, EU Nationals must have been in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the course for which they are seeking funding, including for the purposes of full-time education.
A small number of awards may also be made available to EU Nationals who do not meet the above residency requirement, provided that they have been ordinarily resident in the EU for at least 3 years prior to the start of their proposed programme of study. There are also a very limited number of opportunities for international applicants, in competition with applicants across all the DTP Schools to receive a full award, which includes an international fee waiver.
Enquiries on individual student eligibility for EPSRC DTP studentships should be made to: firstname.lastname@example.org
Consideration is automatic upon application for admission to the Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering (Energy and Environment) with a October 2018 start date.
