We welcome speculative applications from prospective PhD students from home and overseas to come and study Chemical Reaction Engineering. For students from the European Union, grants are sometimes available (e.g. EPSRC).
Overseas (non-EU) students may apply for funding from their home country (e.g Conacyt Mexico, Petroleum Technology Development Fund of Nigeria) or for one of the coveted Overseas Research Scholarships.
For further details please email Dr Joe Wood, or request an application pack from Mrs Lynn Draper, our postgraduate secretary.
