Enter into this exciting programme

Eligibility

Entry into this exciting new programme is competitive and will take account of qualifications, aspirations and experience. Successful applicants are likely to have an engineering background with some specialisation in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics; students from related fields will also be considered. Students are normally expected to have a 2.1 or 1st class honours degree from a UK University or an equivalent standard from an overseas university. The majority of successful applicants must be eligible for EPSRC funding but a number of places are also available to those who fall outside this category.

To find out if you need to take a language test as part of your application, please see the Graduate Admissions site here.

Students must partake in the MRes year even if they have a Master’s qualification already.

The MRes is specially designed for the Gas Turbine Aerodynamics CDT and is an integral part of the course.

The University's ability to offer this course in 2019/20 depends on funding decisions scheduled to be made by the EPSRC in December 2018 for all CDTs seeking renewal. We will therefore not be able to confirm any offers of admission until at least December 2018. Applications will nevertheless be assessed as they are received, so you should not delay in submitting your application. If the course is not offered, then either your application fee will be refunded, as well as travel expenses to attend for interview, or (with your consent) your application may be transferred to another course.

Funding

The majority of successful applicants must be eligible for EPSRC funding but a number of places are also available to those who fall outside this category. EPSRC funding currently offers stipends of £14,553 plus fees, additional industrial contributions of £4,000 may be available.

The University of Cambridge also offers a number of scholarships to overseas applicants, details of which can be found here.


How to Apply

Applications for this programme should be made on the standard graduate admissions form to the University of Cambridge, stating course code EGEGR5 (EPSRC CDT MRes + PhD Gas Turbine Aerodynamics).

The MRes in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics is only available as part of the CDT in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics. On successful completion of the MRes, students will begin the PhD phase of the CDT.

In the Research Proposal section of the form, please state an order of preference for the university at which you would like to study for the PhD phase of the CDT.
