We have a new website! For more information on the CDT please click here!


Applications for October 2018 will open at the end of September 2017.


The final deadline by which applications must be submitted to the online system is 30 June 2018. However, applications are continuously reviewed and prospective students are encouraged to apply as soon as possible.


Entry into this exciting new programme is competitive and will take account of qualifications, aspirations and experience. Successful applicants are likely to have an engineering background with some specialisation in fluid mechanics and thermodynamics; students from related fields will also be considered. Students are normally expected to have a 2.1 or 1st class honours degree from a UK University or an equivalent standard from an overseas university. The majority of successful applicants must be eligible for EPSRC funding but a number of places are also available to those who fall outside this category.

How to apply

Applications for this programme should be made on the standard graduate admissions form to the University of Cambridge, stating course code EGEGR5 (EPSRC CDT MRes + PhD Gas Turbine Aerodynamics).

The MRes in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics is only available as part of the CDT in Gas Turbine Aerodynamics. On successful completion of the MRes, students will begin the PhD phase of the CDT.

In the Research Proposal section of the form, please state an order of preference for the university at which you would like to study for the PhD phase of the CDT.
