Applying for a PhD in the Structures Group

We welcome applications from excellent students who wish to join the Structures Group.  There are two main application routes for graduate study within the Structures Group at the University of Cambridge.  The first is for our ‘direct entry’ MPhil (1 year) or ‘direct entry’ PhD (3 year) degrees.  The second is for students interested in Cambridge’s MRes+PhD (1 year MRes +3 year PhD) course offered through our EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Future Infrastructure and Built Environment: Resilience in a Changing World (FIBE2).  

--Direct entry MPhil or PhD applicants

Applications are handled centrally so you need to apply through the University Graduate Admissions portal:  https://www.graduate.study.cam.ac.uk/

As part of your application you must state the name of the supervisor you wish to work with.  You will also need to put forward a strong research proposal.  We would therefore strongly advise you to look carefully at potential supervisors’ webpages and identify a supervisor with research interests that match yours.  Please then contact the supervisor for an initial discussion.   If you are needing funding, please note the funding deadlines for schemes administered/offered by the University are often up to a year before the date of entry. So please ensure your application meets these deadlines:
