Applicants eligible for Home Fees (incl. UK and Irish nationals, and those with settled status)

Fully funded UKRI studentships (covering fees + maintenance) are available to all applicants who are accepted to the MRes+PhD. UK and Irish students are also considered for the University based funding sources mentioned below, in addition to UKRI funding. Applicants with pre-settled status are expected to qualify for home level fees if they meet the relevant criteria.

Applicants eligible for Home fees may also be eligible for other prestigious scholarships provided by Cambridge Trusts, including the Harding scholarship. No separate application is normally needed for these, but applicants must tick the relevant boxes on the main application for admission, even if no supporting reasons are provided in the space given.

Applicants eligible for Overseas Fees

UKRI and University Based Funding

All applicants who are eligible for Overseas fees and are accepted to the MRes+PhD will be considered for partial funding (home-level fees and maintenance) from UKRI, and will also be put forward for various additional funding sources for the home-overseas fee difference. Funding offers will normally be made as a full package.
These additional funding sources include, but are not limited to competitive scholarship programmes such as the Gates Cambridge Scholarship, Harding Scholarship and other University based scholarships, as well as funding from NanoDTC industry partners. Application for these is normally via the main graduate admission application form.
These additional funding sources may also offer full scholarships to applicants who are successful in their competitive selection process.

Applicants must ensure that they submit their application by 6th Jan 2022 in order to be considered for University based funding. Please note that the two NanoDTC internal review deadlines are before this date.
