Funding

Approximately 15 four-year studentships are available for students enrolled at the Universities of Oxford, Warwick and Bristol, funded by the EPSRC and BBSRC, universities, industrial partners and charitable trusts. Restrictions on eligibility set by individual funding bodies will apply. Information on eligibility requirements for EPSRC/BBSRC studentships can be found here.

Please be aware that overseas applicants are not eligible for EPSRC/BBSRC studentships; however there are a number of scholarship opportunities that you can apply for via the programme, through the University or external funding agencies. It is highly recommended that you apply for funding as early as you can, even before submitting your application to the programme. Further details and specific deadlines regarding funding available from the University of Oxford can be found on the University’s graduate admissions page.

Please identify all the scholarship opportunities that you are eligible for on the online application form when submitting your application, otherwise your application will not be considered for these scholarships.
