Our Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) allow you to contribute to the development of a research project that has already been outlined by a team of established researchers within our consortium and partner organisations.

Each CDA includes provision for specific skills training to support the research to be undertaken, and also for employability enhancement opportunities within and beyond academia.

Your research proposal should explain the direction you propose to take the project, the expertise you bring to the project, and the particular career development opportunities you are most interested in capitalising upon.

Application dates

The call for CDA projects from supervisors is open until Monday 3rd October 2022. The chosen projects will be confirmed in early November 2022 on this page.

Student applications for CDA entry opens on 21 November  2022.

Please note: We will provide full guidance on the CDA application process in October via this page.
