Please read the following information carefully as this is different from the University guidance. 

Students who wish to apply for the Industry+MRes+PhD (I+) scheme must be eligible to work in the UK. Please read the Home Office's website for further information.

Step 1: Complete the paper University Graduate Application Form (GRADSAF)

Please email  for an electronic copy of the GRADSAF form. You are not expected to pay any processing fee for I+ application.

Select up to a maximum of 3 potential research projects under Research Projects on this website which also has more details on how to apply.

Once completed, please send this form along with all supporting documents (transcript, evidence of competence in English - if applicable and CV/Resumé) combined to a single pdf document to the and not to the University. 

For further information on how to fill in the GRADSAF, please read the I+ programme guide 

Upon receipt, applications will be dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis. Early application is strongly encouraged as places are limited.  Please note that we require a full application (including references and all supporting documents) before we can consider you for interview.

Applications are now open for entry in October 2018. Applications are reviewed and prospective students are interviewed continuously. 

Step 2: Interview for a place on the programme

Your application will be assessed to identify if your experience and qualifications meet the entry requirements and objectives of the Centre. If there is a potential match, you will be invited to attend and interview (in Cambridge or via Skype). A face-to-face interview will involve panel interview(s) and a tour of the facilities.

You may also have an interview at the appropriate Industry partner. Please note that each Industry partner will run the I+ scheme in a way that best suits their requirements. 

Studentship funding decision

Funding decisions for candidates eligible for EPSRC studentships administered by the CDT will be made as soon as reasonably possible after the interviews (normally within 3-4 weeks).
