Applications are now open for the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet DTP fully funded NERC studentships for 2017/18.
Student applications must be submitted by 16 January 2017 for October 2017 start.
How to apply
Choose the project that you would like to apply for and contact the lead supervisor with a cover letter and CV (don't wait for the deadline) to apply.
You should then also apply through the main Imperial application process.
(NB the SSCP DTP does not appear in the postgraduate programme search. Please search for the lead supervisor’s department which can be found on each project’s advertisement page).
Am I eligible to apply?
There are two ways of being funded for a place on the SSCP DTP programme, a NERC-funded studentship and a Grantham-funded studentship.
We are offering 15 NERC studentships and 3 Grantham studentships, which will be awarded among the applicants for the projects below.
There are different eligibility criteria to meet depending on the funding source for UK (home), EU and overseas applicants. Please see our Eligibility Criteria Fact Sheet to determine whether you are eligible for our studentships.
If you have further questions regarding eligibility, please contact the specific Registry Admissions team for your faculty.
The UK government has confirmed that EU students starting their studies in the 2017–18 academic year will continue to be eligible to receive funding for the duration of their course. EU students will also remain eligible for the same government funding support as they are now, including the Tuition Fee Loan. This access to government funding will continue throughout your course, even if the UK exits the EU during this time. Please visit Imperial's page "Imperial and the EU" for more information as it develops.
