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 eligible UK/EU applicants with excellent academic profiles who are successful at interview (applicants must also meet RCUK criteria). No separate funding application is required. These funds are typically allocated from January-March, so early application is encouraged. Applicants applying for studentships should expect to be interviewed.

Applications should be made via the Cardiff University application service.
