Please be aware that the CDT has now filled all of our funded places for entry and there are no studentships remaining for the 2021/22 academic year.
We expect applications for the 2022/23 academic year to open in Autumn 2021 and details of available projects will appear on our webpage once the application system re-opens. If you have any queries, please email email@example.com and the team will be happy to help.
Applications are accepted all year round, but applicants would generally have to apply and be accepted at least one month before the start date of the course. This is particularly true of applicants who would be applying for a student visa. Applications are dealt with in the order with which they are received, and so we encourage early applications. Applications have now closed for the 2021/22 academic year as we have now filled all of our funded places for entry and there are no studentships remaining. We expect applications for the 2022/23 academic year to open in Autumn 2021 and details of available projects and the admissions process will appear on our applications page once the applications system re-opens. If you have any queries, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and the team will be happy to help.

Offers of a scholarship are given to those with (or expecting) a First in their undergraduate degree, and occasionally to applicants with a high 2:1. Entry criteria for the course is a minimum of a 2:1 undergraduate degree or equivalent.
