Applications for Ph.D. studentships are welcome anytime throughout the year.


Funding for prospective British 1st Class students can often be obtained through EPSRC DTP funding at Bath.


The University of Bath currently has two Centre's for Doctoral Training (CDTs) in Sustainable Chemical Technologies and Catalysis (with Bristol and Cardiff) that regularly fund high quality Ph.D students to work within the Bull group.


International students who wish to apply for Ph.D Research Scholarships are encouraged to contact Professor Bull at an early stage of the application process to maximise their chances of funding and to ensure that they satisfy the University of Bath's requirements for enrolment on a Ph.D program.
