The School usually receives a yearly allocation of:
- Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC) Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) for Particle Physics and Astrophysics PhD projects;
- Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) DTPs for all other Physics-based PhD projects.
The studentships are awarded to suitably qualified eligible students on a competitive basis and cover the tuition fee and living expenses for a PhD student for up to 3.5 years.
We also receive a number of CASE awards to facilitate collaborative research with an industrial partner or a government laboratory.
Members of the Physics School offer individual studentships attached to particular grants from UK or EU Research Councils.
Overseas and self-funded students
We accept a wide range of government scholarships from all over the world and you should apply for these independently from your home country and not through the University.
Self funded: We also welcome well-qualified self-funded students who can cover the appropriate tuition fees and have enough funding to cover living costs in Bristol. Note that tuition fees are subject to a slight increase on an annual basis.
China Scholarship Council funding: The University is accepting applications for the China Scholarship Council for students starting September 2020 - see the CSC information page for details and deadlines.
MSc by Research funding
The School does not currently have any funding available to support MSc by Research students.
