PhD training centres
We want to train our postgraduates to tackle society's big challenges in a way that draws on the talent and imagination housed across the College.
One way in which we do this is through our government-funded PhD training centres.
Imperial is the lead institution in 12 of the UK's 115 Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council-funded Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) – more than any other UK university.
We're also home to a number of Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs), funded by other government research councils. This includes the Science and Solutions for a Changing Planet DTP, funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC); BBSRC funded PhD Studentships in the Biological Sciences; London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS) funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC); and Imperial College MRC DTP (Medical Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership) Research Studentships.
