Dates and Timings

When to apply

The University's ability to offer this course in 2019/20 depends on funding decisions scheduled to be made by the EPSRC in January 2019 for all CDTs seeking renewal. We will therefore not be able to confirm any offers of admission until at least January 2019. 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.
