Opportunities for international students

EPSRC provides funding for doctoral training in engineering and the physical sciences through the following training grants to Research Organisations: Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) and Industrial CASE (ICASE). A Research Organisation that holds a training grant will manage the recruitment and selection of the students who will be funded by that training grant.

For information on eligibility and how to apply, a prospective students must contact the relevant university. Information on the Research Organisations that hold EPSRC training grants is available from Grants on the Web and Gateway to Research.

For the majority of EPSRC funding for doctoral training, the eligibility requirements outlined in the terms and conditions of training grants apply. 

Any prospective doctoral student wishing to study at a UK research organisation, including prospective international students, can apply for a UKRI studentship.

All UKRI-funded doctoral students will be eligible for the full award – both the stipend to support living costs, and fees at the UK research organisation rate.
