PhD Studentships


Each year, the School of Physics and Astronomy receives funding from UK Research Councils (STFC and ESPRC), as well as other sources. This funding is awarded to UK/EU applicants with excellent academic profiles who are successful at interview (applicants must also meet RCUK criteria). No separate application is required. These funds are allocated within the first three months of the year, so early application is encouraged. Applicants applying for studentships should expect to be interviewed.

Applications should be made via the Cardiff University application service.
