postgraduate research

Doctoral training partnerships

Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP’s) are usually funded by Research Councils, spanning multiple institutions, which aim to fund students to undertake their research degree.

They enable students to work alongside leading academics within specific subject areas and offer opportunities for a variety of research training and skills development. In addition, the DTP’s can provide cross-institutional collaboration with other consortium members.

Essex belongs to a range of DTP’s in a breadth of research areas, which may be able to fund your studies:
