The Centre will fund up to 20 studentships per year. There is a variety of sources of funding available. EPSRC will fund Home/EU students only however we do have some opportunities for industry funding which is available to all students.
Each studentship will be funded for 4 years. This includes tuition fees, stipend and bench fee.
Stipend: Students will receive a tax free stipend of approx £16,000 per year.
Bench fees: A generous allowance will be provided for research consumables and for attending UK and international conferences.
The CDT is structured as a “1+3” training programme, offering students the opportunity to first obtain an MRes qualification which directly leads into a well-founded PhD for years 2-4.
Year 1: MRes Training & Research
Years 2 - 4: PhD Research
Research Projects start properly in September of the second year, however there are still additional benefits that come from being a member of the CDT. Additional skills trainings run through years 2 – 4 on a fortnightly basis and include:
The first year combines taught modules and research projects, leading to the award of MRes Medical Imaging Sciences. Information about the MRes programme can be found here.
In the first year, during the MRes programme, modules may be assessed by examination, coursework, or some combination of these. The type of assessment for each module will be detailed in the MRes course handbook.
