Applications close on Friday 19th May 2023


Please note that part-time study is not available this year.  Please refer to our programme page under the heading 'flexible learning' for further information.

The list of projects available is not exhaustive, although the projects listed below have preference: they have funding agreed and are available immediately.

Applicants who cannot find a suitable project listed should discuss their preference with the CDT admissions panel; although we will do our best, there is no guarantee we can find an appropriate supervisor or funding. Similarly, candidates are welcome to apply and be put on a mailing list informing them when new projects become available.

Please note also that project supervisors may require more specific qualifications and backgrounds to suit the skills and experience needed by the PhD research project. These should be listed on the project descriptions - if not please enquire with the supervisor directly.

Due to the sensitive nature of the research being carried out, some projects may require you to be a UK national. These should also be listed on the project descriptions - if not please enquire with the supervisor directly.

Specific research topics will be agreed with candidates when an offer is made.
