Centres for Doctoral Training Open Day 2019

The Centres for Doctoral Training bring together diverse areas of expertise in order to train researchers to address engineering and science-related problems.

Whether you’ve already applied or plan to apply to one of the EPSRC Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT) offered by the University of Leeds, come along to our CDT Open Day. Meet the CDT staff and current students, learn more about the Centres for Doctoral Training programmes, and have the opportunity to get your questions answered. The CDTs draw on world-class and internationally recognised research from a range of disciplines and provide students with the knowledge and skills through which to address today’s global issues and prepare them for future challenges.

The University of Leeds hosts the following CDT programmes and each has up to 10 fully-funded* places available for September 2020 entry:

There are also a number of fully-funded* PhD studentships available within the following Centres for September 2020 entry:

CDT students are funded for 4 years and work in a supportive, cohort environment, creating and developing relationships between teams in universities and forging lasting links with industry. A number of the CDTs at Leeds have a taught component to the programme which is designed to support a range of academic backgrounds in building a strong foundation in their field before choosing a PhD project. Students’ PhD research is conducted with the support of outstanding supervisors from across the University, alongside the continuation of professional development activities. These include the opportunity to attend an industrial or academic placement; workshops; courses; seminars; career training, and much more.
