Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT)
What is a CDT?
Centres for Doctoral Training are 4-year programmes, often with a strong focus on interdisciplinary work. The first year involves taught courses as well as mini research projects, seminars, and transferable skills - all in a cohort of 12-16 other students. During this first year you will decide on a suitable research topic, and the remaining three years will be structured in much the same way as a traditional PhD or DPhil. CDT programmes are an excellent way of exploring different interdisciplinary areas based around a central theme, and the cohort structure enables you to make friends and network outside of your college.
