CASE Studentships

CASE Studentships

Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering (CASE) studentships facilitate knowledge transfer between students based in Newcastle University and any private or public sector organisation.

CASE Studentships are four-year doctoral training grants. They enable top quality Science and Engineering graduates to undertake research (leading to a PhD) on a subject selected and supervised jointly by academic and industrial partners.
