PhD Applied Mathematics - Third year student

"It's applicability which really interests me. You can actually see the problem which needs solving and so when you find that you have done something new and you can actually see the result, I think that's the most interesting thing."

Centres for Doctoral Training

Fully funded Doctoral training programmes provide structured PhD training and focus on multi-disciplinary challenges in modern science, with groups of students working as a cohort in a defined scientific area. 

Each programme varies in structure, however studentships typically last for four years with opportunities to learn theoretical and experimental skills through lectures and/or laboratory rotations during the first year. PhD projects usually include collaborative supervision.

The majority of fully funded Doctoral Training Centre spaces are only available to UK/EU candidates, although some centres may be able to part-fund international candidates. Please read the funding criteria carefully for each centre.
