Please note that the deadlines for funding via the Gates Trust and Cambridge Trusts for students wishing to begin in the 2022/2023 academic year (to include October 2022 and January 2023) have now passed.  

For students planning to apply for admission in the 2023/2024 academic year (to include October 2023 and January 2024):  We will begin accepting applications for admission and funding consideration in September 2022.  Early applications are recommended as some funding deadlines are as early as October 2022. 

Funding Deadlines

 A full list of deadlines is published on the Deadlines Page of the University's Graduate Admissions Office.  Please note that an offer of admission does not guarantee a scholarship, and the Department of Chemical Engineering and Biotechnology does not provide funding support towards fees and maintenance from its own resources. Also, under University regulations, it is not possible for students to work as a research or teaching assistant whilst studying for a PhD.

Due to the highly competitive nature of scholarship opportunities at the Universitywe encourage all applicants to search for funding outside of the University, i.e., government scholarships offered by your home country.
