We also have a number of CDT Projects for direct applications. 

Please visit our PhD Researchers page for details on topics currently being undertaken in the CDT. 

We welcome applications from Home and International (incl. EU) students from a range of backgrounds, including Computing, Engineering, Geography, Geomatics, Mathematics and related disciplines, and are fully committed to equality, diversity and inclusion to ensure fair opportunity for all. Please note that there are a limited number of international awards available.

A substantive Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) of £15,000 to cover the costs for consumables, travel, conferences, and access to placement opportunities with industrial partners.
