Research projects

Students complete an individual six-month extended research project during the second half of the taught component of study. Students are offered a portfolio of PhD project proposals towards the end of their extended research project, at which point they decide (in discussion with their supervisors) whether to continue the extended project as a PhD or whether to select a new project.

I like the fact that it's a learning curve. You learn how the University works, and how you work as a researcher, before you start your actual PhD.

Konstantina Kanari

The greatness of our CDT is that it gives you the tools to challenge yourself as much as you want, and I think that a PhD is about that: handling challenges and being able to push yourself out of the comfort zone.
