CDT in Science and Applications of Graphene and Related Nanomaterials (Graphene NOWNANO CDT)


Funding options for securing your place to study with the Graphene NOWNANO CDT.

Fully funded (tuition fee and stipend) places are available to UK and Irish nationals ordinarily resident in the UK or Ireland for more than 3 years prior to the start of the programme.

EU and wider international applications are welcome, however please note we are unable to offer any funding and you must secure external funding to cover the international tuition fee and living costs for the four year duration of the programme, for example via a scholarship.

For exceptionally academically strong EU and wider international applicants with proven research potential (e.g. published papers or evidence of significant contribution to research projects) there are some opportunities of funding available from The University of Manchester and the CDT may be able to assist you in securing one of these scholarships:

  • China Scholarship Council and The University of Manchester's Joint Scholarship Programme
  • President's Doctoral Scholar Award
  • FSE Dean's scholarships

Details of these scholarships can be found on the Faculty of Science and Engineering website. Note that other awards listed there may not be suitable for Graphene NOWNANO applicants. 

We may be able to issue provisional conditional offers subject to securing the required funding to be used in national scholarship applications.

There may also be alternative funding opportunities available for international applicants for more information please visit the University's international student funding advice page.
