EPSRC CDT in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (NanoDTC)

We welcome applicants from across Physical Sciences including Physics, Chemistry, Materials and Engineering for our MRes+PhD programme. Please read more about the Course Details and information on Funding before applying.

Applications for entry in Oct 2021 are now open. The first round deadline is on 3rd Dec. Please apply using the Cambridge Graduate Application portal here.

Applicants will be shortlisted based on their written applications, taking into account qualifications, aspirations and experience. Final selection is done via an interview process which focusses on candidates’ independent thinking approach in physical sciences, in addition to their knowledge, aspirations and experience.

The University requirement for entry into the programme is a 3 year degree with a II.1, but most students who are offered admission on the NanoDTC usually have a first class degree with at least 4 years of training in a relevant subject before they start the programme, along with some research experience as part of their degree courses or otherwise.

International applicants should refer to this link to find out the equivalent of a first in their country/institution.

We do not offer the MRes or PhD components as standalone programmes.
