Funding for the CDT is provided by the EPSRC, and we expect to award a number of fully-funded studentships (stipend and College fees for four years) to qualified and eligible candidates to join annual CDT cohorts.
We have now concluded recruitment for the 2017/18 CDT cohort. We expect to open for applications for the 2018/19 cohort (to start their PhD studies in September 2018) in November 2017. Eligibility criteria for receiving CDT studentships are given below.
CDT studentships fund four year of studies, covering the annual university fees, and providing an highly competitive stipend.
To be considered for one of the studentships, candidates will need to satisfy the EPSRC funding eligibility criteria. In particular, to be eligible for a full award (stipend and fees), a student must have:
- settled status in the UK, meaning they have no restrictions on how long they can stay
- been ‘ordinarily resident’ in the UK for three years prior to the start of the grant. This means they must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences); and,
- not been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education. (This does not apply to UK or EU nationals).
Please refer to the EPSRC Student Eligibility page for further details.
In addition to the EPSRC-funded students, we may be able to accept applications from a small number of highly-qualified, non-eligible candidates to join the annual CDT cohorts carrying their own funding (for fees and maintenance). If you are interested in joining the CDT in Cyber Security under the self-funded mode, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to obtain more information about the programme and fees.
