Functional Nanomaterials

Bristol Centre for Functional Nanomaterials (BCFN) is a nationally-funded (EPSRC) Centre for Doctoral Training. Our four-year integrated PhD programme begins with a structured year of training, giving you all the foundational skills necessary for you to prosper in your PhD research. There is a very strong emphasis on exploration and students are actively encouraged to try different research themes before choosing their PhD topic. After the first year, students usually move to an academic department in the faculties of science, engineering or medical sciences for their PhD project but remain a BCFN student and keep close ties through taking part in teaching, regular seminars and events.

Entry requirements

An upper second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) in physics, chemistry, materials science or a related subject (e.g. MSci, MPhys, MEng, MChem). Applicants with a lower second-class honours BSc degree may be considered if they can demonstrate very good potential for research.

See international equivalent qualifications on the International Office website.

Sponsorship information
