There are two separate routes through which you can apply for a SWW2 studentship (for further information on how to apply for either type of award, please see the ‘Apply’ page):
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.
Three CDA awards are available this year – details of the three CDA projects can be found here.
