Collaborative doctoral programmes

Some of our supervisor-led projects are funded by the AHRC CDA scheme and the ESRC CASE scheme.

The successful candidate will receive an offer for a three-year PhD project with funding awarded to cover tuition fees and a stipend for the duration of the PhD.

The awards are intended to encourage and develop collaboration and partnerships, providing opportunities for doctoral researchers to develop research with a direct impact on an industry organisation and the wider community, while enhancing their professional profile.

The projects also encourage and establish networks and connections toward the development of long-term benefits for all collaborating partners, providing access to resources and materials, knowledge and expertise that may not otherwise have been available.
