Applications for the next round of studentships commencing in October 2020 are now open.  Application is via the application portals on each university’s main website.

Applicants are also asked to complete the following formal application declaration irrespective of whether application is made to Oxford or Imperial. This will help us in locating your applications.

Students must meet the academic entry requirements for admission at Imperial College London or the University of Oxford . Eligibility criteria will apply; normally EU and UK nationals who satisfy residency requirements are eligible for all funding sources, there will be limited funding opportunities for overseas students. However, we do encourage applications from everyone with a suitable academic background.
 
Please be advised that Applications are closed for the first round.  Shortlisted candidates from this round will be invited to look at our proposed research projects with industry and discuss their preferences with the interview panel.

Successful applicants will receive funding for the duration of their 4-year studentship.

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.

Most of our studentships are restricted to Home / EU students. However, in recognition of the outstanding talent of many international students, both Oxford and Imperial offer several highly prestigious international scholarships designed to attract and reward the best students.

The main source of funding open to all overseas applicants 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 24th January 2020. 

Students are expected to finish the programme within four years and funding is available for this period. It covers fees, and a living stipend that we expect to be about £17,009 per year.

The CDT has several funding sources. Eligibility criteria will apply – and will be different depending on the funding source.

Most funding is for UK and EU nationals (see https://epsrc.ukri.org/skills/students/help/eligibility/ for further details on research council funding).  We also anticipate being able to fund a small number of students of any nationality.
