The UCL EPSRC DTP (Doctoral Training Partnership) has 70 fully-funded four-year studentships available for 2024/25. The DTP is also offering several Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) CASE conversion studentships. These studentships give you the opportunity to work with an industrial partner, undertake at least 3-months placement(s) at the partner’s premises, and be allocated an industrial supervisor.
Prospective students may apply to any of the projects available in the project catalogue.
Note: Where unavoidable, the UCL EPSRC DTP reserves the right to withdraw projects from the catalogue before or after the application deadline of 08 January 2024. Candidates who have applied to a project that has been withdrawn will be informed as soon as possible.
Studentships are open to both Home and International fee status students, however EPSRC caps the number of International students at 30% so a maximum of 21 International students can be recruited and competition for these places will be particularly strong.
Studentships are expected to start on 01-Oct-2024 unless exceptional circumstances require an alternate start date. Exceptional circumstance include, but are not limited to, disability and caring responsibilities.
The UCL EPSRC DTP aims to recruit 70 outstanding students to undertake fully-funded four-year PhD (including EngD) studentships at UCL.
