Doctoral Training Centres and Partnerships

Enjoy PhD funding, expert training and a research community.

An exciting way to study for your PhD

What does it mean to be part of a Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP), Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) or Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT)?

It’s your chance to:

  • be part of a community of research students
  • collaborate with leading researchers from different universities and schools
  • receive funding to help cover the cost of your PhD

An interdisciplinary approach to research

Doctoral training centres and partnerships are often interdisciplinary. This means you can receive expert support and training across a range of subject areas.

You may also get the chance to collaborate with an organisation from business or industry.
