STFC creates impact by training some of our brightest minds so they can improve and influence society.

In recent years STFC invested £24.1 million in postgraduate training and fellowships in particle physics, nuclear physics and astronomy, including 220 new PhD studentships.

Our current cohort of 766 PhD students is trained in high-end scientific, analytical and technical skills which drive the knowledge economy.

Postgraduate students have been provided with over 16,000 training days to postgraduate students, funded by other research councils, at our facilities and departments across a range of disciplines.
