This CDT consists of a taught Masters in the first year followed by a PhD in a partner Department of the University or BAS.

Additional costs may be incurred in relation to PhD associated fieldwork and/or research trips. These will be bespoke to the individual student and project. Applicants should discuss any potential additional costs with their intended supervisor prior to application.  Supervisors are often able to cover or contribute towards these costs, depending on financial resources available. Where not possible, or where research-related costs are not specifically included in a stipend, or if students are self-funding, students will usually be expected to find additional funding elsewhere.
