About the experience

The SSCP DTP brings together Imperial College London’s world leading expertise with that of our partners to offer a unique world-class multidisciplinary PhD training programme. New SSCP DTP students join a multi-year and interdisciplinary cohort of existing students which span all areas of environmental research at the College.

The training programme is designed to provide students with the depth of knowledge that comes with an Imperial College London PhD, but also a wider breadth of knowledge gained from attending bespoke training courses, events and participation in secondment opportunities designed to expand students’ horizons and awareness of how to tackle environmental issues.
