For EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT)
EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training are cross-departmental, cross-faculty or cross-UK institution research centres sponsored by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC)
Each CDT offers four-year fully funded EPSRC studentships (PhD). This funding normally requires you to be a UK or European Union national who has been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of your CDT studentship. However some CDTs also offer industrially funded studentships that are more widely available.
International applicants would normally require to be self-funded to enter these programmes.
