Entry requirements

Applicants must hold, or expect to obtain, a first-class or upper second-class degree in the physical sciences, or will have obtained more than 50% of their course credits from physical sciences modules, from a recognised academic institution. 

These studentships are restricted to "UK students". Non-UK and non-EU students are welcome to apply if they are able to self-fund the four-year programme. 

  • UK students are defined as having the settled status in the UK (no restrictions on how long they can stay), and having been ordinarily resident in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship, as well as, for non-EU nationals, not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education
  • Exception: we do have a small studentship proportion for EU nationals that have not been ordinarily residing in the UK for 3 years prior to the start of the studentship, however, these are extremely competitive and once filled, you may be turned down based on your fee status (EU fee status)
