Funding eligibility

Full EPSRC funding (fees + stipend) is available for UK students and EU students who have been resident in the UK for the past three years. EU students can find out if they qualify for full funding from the Cambridge University and EPSRC websites.

A limited number of places with partial EPSRC funding (fees only) for other EU students is available. Partial funding can be complemented from various funding sources, see e.g. Cambridge University Funding. Fees only EU students can apply for funding from the Gates Cambridge Scholarships and the Cambridge Home/EU Scholarship Scheme (CHESS).

Overseas and non-EU applicants are generally not eligible to apply for funding from the Sensor CDT, but are encouraged to apply if they are able to secure their own funding to cover fees and living expenses.

You may also wish to consider applying for competitive scholarships offered by the University and external sources. Please note that the deadline for scholarships administrated by Cambridge University is 7 December 2016 (the deadline for Gates Scholarships for US citizens is 12 October 2016).

Further information on fees for this programme is available.
