CDT Projects

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training studentships follow a 1+3 framework: a cohort-based MRes in Medical Imaging Sciences in year 1 lays the foundation for a subsequent accelerated 3 year PhD in Medical Imaging.

  • CDT studentships come with a £16,777 stipend per year and a generous consumables budget.
  • Only home UK or EU candidates fulfilling the 3-year UK residency requirement are eligible for the EPSRC CDT studentships.
  • EU students who have not lived, worked or studied in the UK for 3 years prior to the funding commencing are elegible for fees only awards.

CDT Projects (Industry)

There are a number of potential PhD projects available for 2018/2019 cohort that are linked to industrial partners. These are a mix of 3 year and 1+3 year projects. As a student you will be provided with an additional industrial co-supervisor as a contact point and you will spend around 20% of your time at industrial R&D departments. This model for the CDT provides the PhD student with access to training, facilities and expertise not available in an academic setting. In addition, industrial partners provide student placements and industry workshops to demonstrate to students the potential application of their innovation and to highlight career pathways.

  • CDT industry studentships come with a £16,777 stipend per year and a generous consumables budget.
  • Only home UK or EU candidates fulfilling the 3-year UK residency requirement are eligible for the EPSRC CDT studentships. EU students are only eligible for a full studentship if they have lived, worked or studied within the UK for 3 years prior to the funding commencing.
