We have a number of funded places on the CDT each year, both for UK and international (which includes EU, EEU) applicants. Please apply to the CDT and we will assess your academic application first, and then make a decision about how to best find funding if you are successful.
*Please note that during your application, you will be asked to provide a research statement. You do not have to write your own statement. Instead, use the text provided below:
‘The research that will be undertaken in the CDT will broadly fit within the themes that we have within the Bristol Composites Institute: Materials, Manufacturing and Structures. We have around 30 academic staff with a variety of interests, but focussed on composite materials covering different sectors such as aircraft and transport, wind energy, construction and the built environment, health, and cross-cutting themes such as sustainability. Research can take place across different themes, and we offer supervision from different academic staff to suit the projects’ needs.’
When asked to name your supervisors, you should list any of the three CDT Directors. As a temporary measure, this does not mean that you will be supervised by this individual, as permanent supervisors are decided upon at a later stage.
