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.

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.

Five CDA awards are available in this year’s competition for entry in September 2021. Details of the projects for which student applications are sought will be posted on this website by 30 November 2020.

The CDA projects advertised last year can be accessed here. These are for illustration purposes only since they have now recruited doctoral students.
