Funded projects

This is a full list of the funded research projects available. Note that in the Experimental Particle Physics and Astronomy areas, the projects listed are examples, and the exact project choice can be discussed after you apply. In all other project areas, specific projects have priority for funded scholarships. Across all areas, studentships are normally only available for UK and in some cases EU students. Self-funded students and students with external scholarships are also welcome to apply: our funding page has full details on funding options.
