Studentships and doctoral training


Get training and development to support your doctorate

To get the most out of your doctorate you should take advantage of the complementary training and development opportunities that are available as part of your studies.

Where to find opportunities

We fund lots of opportunities where those studying for a doctorate on a UKRI studentship can gain research experience and skills.

In almost all cases, your research organisation is best placed to advise on what is available. These may be:

  • already built into your doctoral programme
  • separate opportunities that are advertised and need to be applied for within your research organisation. Speak with your university for more information
