Centres for Doctoral Training

The University of Manchester continues to be successful in securing funding to support Centres for Doctoral Training (CDT or DTC) and Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP). These are flagship doctoral training programmes which provide cutting-edge doctoral study within a dynamic research culture that encourages innovative, cross-disciplinary collaboration.

There are real benefits from undertaking a doctoral programme through a CDT or DTP:

  • Competitive stipends
  • Opportunities to engage in research collaborations with leading researchers from across the partnership
  • Integral involvement of leading industry, business, government and charity partners in both training and research
  • Innovative and engaging student experience from training as part of a cohort
