The following projects are now open for recruitment to commence study in October 2018. Additional project titles may become available at some partner universities. Applications must be made to the university hosting the PhD project title using their online application system. There is no common CDT deadline for submission of applications; each university will set its own timetable for the recruitment to this cohort.

The CDT studentships are fully funded for 4 years at the UK/EU level for tuition fees, the UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) default stipend amount (£14,777 for the 2018/19 academic session) and an annual Research Training & Support Grant (RTSG) allowance of £5,000 (£20k over 4 years).

Before applying, overseas students should contact the institution(s) hosting projects they are interested in to check that the institution has sufficient funding to cover the higher international tuition fee applicable to their citizenship status.
