The centre has up to a minimum of 14 4-year PhD studentships on offer for the coming academic year, split across the three universities.

The studentships are available for UK and International students who possess or are about to obtain a UK first class or 2.1 BEng (Honours), MEng or MSc degree, or equivalent EU qualification, in a relevant physical sciences or engineering discipline.

The studentships cover university tuition fees, provide a highly competitive stipend to help with living costs, and a travel allowance for conference attendance, for the full four years of the programme.

UK candidates must meet the following criteria:

  • Be a UK National (meeting residency requirements), or
  • Have settled status, or
  • Have pre-settled status (meeting residency requirements), or
  • Have indefinite leave to remain or enter

If a candidate does not meet the criteria above, they would be classed as an International student.

International students are eligible for the full studentships; however, it should be noted that this will only cover the fees at home level. Higher fees can be applied which may not be covered by the standard studentship.

Students with full refugee status are eligible for the tuition fees and stipend elements of the studentship and will be classed as a UK student.

The centre is composed of a students from a variety of age groups, academic and industry backgrounds, and experience; from physics graduates and civil engineers to power systems industry experts returning to academia.
