Full details of the postgraduate courses available in the departments of this Faculty, and how to apply, can be found on the University's postgraduate admissions webpages. The Postgraduate Admissions pages also contain detailed information on the University's entrance requirements, costs, funding opportunites, and specific advice for international applicants. 

The Faculty is part of the NERC Doctoral Training Partnership in Earth System Science, and we host, and participate in, a number of EPSRC-funded Centres for Doctoral Training.


British Antarctic Survey

The Faculty is partnered with the British Antarctic Survey (BAS), with whom we admit some research students under joint supervision. Prospective BAS/Cambridge students should visit the BAS website for notice of their annual studentship competition. Admissions for a Cambridge PhD at BAS are, as for university departments, subject to the University of Cambridge's selection process and entrance requirements.


Further details of the application deadlines and the University's funding competitions are found here.

Refer to the relevant course on the University Graduate Admissions website and departmental webpages for details of any deadlines for departmental funding competitions.
