How to Apply
These studentships will be funded by NERC and are available to UK nationals and other EU nationals that have resided in the UK for three years prior to commencing the studentship. If you meet this criteria, funding will be provided for tuition fees and stipend. If you are a citizen of a EU member state you will eligible for a fees-only award, however, we do offer a limited number of studentships offered by the consortium that will fund EU nationals for both fees and stipend.
For further guidance about eligibility please refer to Section B of the NERC studentships handbook.
Applicants whose first language is not English must also produce evidence that they have reached the required standard for admission which for this course is set at the higher level. Details are here.
Applications are to be made to the DTP not a specific project thus only one application per applicant is required. You can state on the form which theme you are interested in but the programme is designed to introduce all successful applicants to a range of areas covering all themes. This is designed to inform the write up and area of your subsequent research proposal completed in the Term 2. See Programme Structure for more information.
Applications for this year are now closed. We will be recruiting for the next academic year in December 2014. Please follow us or sign up to receive our RSS feed to stay informed.
