EPSRC CDT in Sensor Technologies for a Healthy and Sustainable Future


Q. I am an international student, am I eligible for funding from the EPSRC?

Yes, up to 30% of our EPSRC studentships are available to overseas classed applicants. The EPSRC studentships are funded at the home fees rate which means international applicants needed to seek additional funding to cover the difference between the overseas and home fees rates.

The University has since introduced the International Fee Bursary for which can cover this amount to be fully funded at the overseas rate.

For our 2022 cohort, 2 international students were awarded this bursary.

Q. Will I need a Visa to study?

If you do not have indefinite leave to remain in the UK [Eligibility Criterea] you will need to apply for a visa.
We reccommend visiting the International Students website as our office does not directly deal with any visa applications or processes.

Q. I already have a Masters, can I start the PhD directly?

No. The Sensor CDT course is an integrated Masters and PhD programme and progression to the PhD is conditional upon passing the Masters portion.

Q. I have a Masters from Cambridge, are my credits transferrable?

No. The Sensor CDT Masters year is focused on preparing you for PhD research by broadening your view of sensor technologies and advances, as well as sustainability and inclusivity in science.

Q. Who can I use as my referees?

Please refer to the post graduate admissions website for who would be most appropriate to submit a reference.

If you wish to be considered for funding, all your references must be received before the funding deadline.
