Postgraduate Programme


We are looking for numerate, enthusiastic and broad minded candidates who are willing to use their existing knowledge as a platform to engage with the challenges inherent in creating a sustainable energy future.

Background and entry requirements

To be eligible, you must have (or expect to have) a 2.1 (but preferably a 1st class honours degree) in mathematics,  physical sciences or an engineering discipline. Other suitable Masters level experience and qualifications will be considered.

Residence requirements

To be eligible to get a stipend from a Doctoral Training Grant, students MUST demonstrate a relevant connection with the UK, usually established by being ordinarily resident for a period of three years immediately before the date of application for an award.

Ordinarily resident means not wholly or mainly resident for the purpose of full-time education. A relevant connection may be established for a student who is an EU national if the student has been in full-time education in the UK throughout the three years preceding the start date of their PhD or masters course.

Please see the EPSRC website for more details.

If you don't have a relevant connection to the UK you are not eligible for EPSRC funding, but you can apply if you demonstrate that you can cover fees and other costs.
