Equal opportunities

Diverse and inclusive environmentbiology_team

The Sensor CDT is committed to an environment which supports and encourages all under-represented groups, promotes an inclusive culture, and values diversity. This commitment is not limited to the student body but also includes the academic and non-academic staff at the CDT.


We specifically welcome applications from students of still under-represented groups at the Sensor CDT. All applications are evaluated on the basis of academic merit.

University policies and support

For more in-depth information of the University's equal opportunities policies follow this link.


The Disability Resource Centre at the University of Cambridge offers support to disabled students. If you disclose a disability on application you will be emailed by the DRC between March and July, asking for more information. Engaging with the DRC before you start your course will make for an easier transition into life as a postgraduate student. You can disclose a disability at any time during the application process.
