We would like to receive applications from individuals who hold (or expect to receive) a masters level degree (or equivalent) in mathematics, statistics, physics, computer science, engineering, or in a closely related subject.
Whilst the programme is normally intended for full-time study, we welcome applications for part-time study, including from those with established careers or caring responsibilities.
The majority of our funded studentships are limited to Home / Republic of Ireland nationals. However, in recognition of the outstanding talent of many overseas students, both Oxford and Imperial offer several highly prestigious international scholarships designed to attract and reward the best students.
An additional source of funding open to all applicants, including overseas students through Imperial College is via the “President’s scholarship”
To be considered for this scholarship, you need to follow the procedures on the Imperial website (please note this differs to the standard CDT application procedure and there are specific deadlines unrelated to the CDT you need to adhere to). Furthermore, prior to applying, candidates must have contacted a supervisor in an academic department at Imperial College London who has agreed to supervise their research project and their name needs to be put on the application form.
In order to be considered for most Oxford University scholarships, students must have applied by January 2022.
Please find listed information on eligibility, fee status and stipends:
For an informal discussion about the programme, you can contact Professor Judith Rousseau at email@example.com, or the CDT director, Professor Axel Gandy at firstname.lastname@example.org. It is usually best to start these discussions with one of these contacts via e-mail.
For administrative questions, please write to email@example.com.
We encourage early applications.
Every student will have a home institution (either Imperial or Oxford) and will receive their degree from this institution. Training will take place at both institutions.
It is expected that Oxford-based CDT students will be affiliated to St Peter’s College.
- Send an application to the Admissions Portal for Oxford and/or Imperial.
- Assessment and interviews will take place once applications have been received through the suggested university.
- Offers will be made by Imperial or by Oxford (depending on where you have applied to).
Should you have any further queries regarding the application process please do not hesitate to contact us.
