Entry Requirements

The EngD in SEES is funded by the Engineering & Physical Sciences Research Council and specific eligibility criteria apply to all projects. Please review the requirements below and on the EPSRC website before applying for the programme. If you have any queries about your eligibility, please contact us.

All candidates must demonstrate a relevant connection with the UK. This means: 

  • You must have been 'ordinarily resident' in the UK for at least 3 years immediately prior to starting the EngD and if you are an International candidate (ie. not UK/EU) then this cannot have been solely for the purposes of education;
  • You must have no restrictions on how long you can stay in the UK (e.g. indefinite leave to remain);  

Candidates must also be able to demonstrate a capability to undertake and benefit from research training through to completion, to the standard necessary to qualify for an EngD. This means: 

  • You must have at least an upper second class honours degree, or a combination of qualifications and/or experience equivalent to that level; 
  • Postgraduate qualifications and industrial experience are looked upon favorably.  

Further information is available from the EPSRC website
