Doctoral Training Partnerships



EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP) provide funding to UK universities to support multiple studentships. They are flexible awards to support doctoral training in any areas of engineering and the physical sciences with relevance to the EPSRC remit. The university holding a DTP manages the advertisement of opportunities and recruitment to studentships funded through the DTP. They determine the length of studentships, stipend levels, and the allocation of studentships within their organisation. Any students interested in EPSRC-funded studentships should check the information available on DTPs provided by the university at which they wish to study. There is no route for prospective students to apply to EPSRC for a studentship.
