What is a Doctoral Training Partnership?
Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) or Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) are multi-institutional schemes designed to support the training of the next generation of world-class researchers.
Benefits of a Doctoral Training Partnership
- You'll be part of a cohort of other research students, creating a community and exciting learning environment
- You'll receive a stipend to help support yourself during your studies
- You'll be able to collaborate with leading researchers and benefit from being part of a partnership
The University of Leicester is a partner in six DTPs through which we can offer funded PhD studentships in a wide range of research areas. Studentships are available to highly motivated and qualified applicants and provide a generous support package usually including a full fee waiver, annual stipend, and research training support grant.
Each DTP/CDT has its own application schedule and deadline. Enquiries outside of the main application periods are welcomed.
