your postgraduate research. Join one of our centres and you'll work
alongside leading academics in your subject. Centres are funded by research
councils or other bodies and have various names (Doctoral Training Centres,
Centres for Doctoral Training and Doctoral Training Partnerships). All offer
you the same benefit - gain the skills and knowledge to tackle key issues
facing the world today.
