Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP)

EPSRC Doctoral Training Partnerships fund doctoral training in UK Research Organisations. They are flexible awards to support doctoral training in any areas of engineering and the physical sciences with relevance to the EPSRC remit (information on this is available, please see: EPSRC remit).

The terms and conditions of training grants provide the framework for EPSRC DTPs and are available from the RCUK website along with the Training Grant Guide.

The university holding a DTP manages the advertisement of opportunities and recruitment to studentships funded through the DTP. Any students interested in EPSRC-funded studentships may wish to check information available on DTPs to the university at which they wish to study and should ask the relevant university about how to apply, eligibility, and so on. There is no route for prospective students to apply to EPSRC for a studentship.
