EPSRC Studentships

The Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) is the main UK government agency for funding research and training in engineering and the physical sciences, investing more than £800 million a year in a broad range of subjects – from mathematics to materials science, and from information technology to structural engineering.

Cardiff University is set to benefit from a £350M EPSRC fund to train postgraduate students in engineering and physical sciences.
