There are two separate routes through which you can apply for a SWW2 studentship:

Student-led Awards

We invite high-quality applications from prospective students who wish to propose their own research project. In order to apply, your preferred supervisors must have agreed to supervise your project.  Further information on the application and assessment process will follow soon.

Collaborative Doctoral Awards

Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) are doctoral studentship projects which are developed by consortium academics working in collaboration with an organisation outside of higher education. The supervisory team is pre-determined and consists of two consortium academics and a member of the partner organisation.

CDAs provide students with an opportunity to gain first-hand experience of work outside the university environment and enhance the employment-related skills and training which a student may gain during the course of their award.

There will be 3 CDA awards available this year and the projects will be advertised on our website at the end of November. Further information regarding the application and assessment process will follow soon.
