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