Progressing from MRes to PhD

On successful completion of the MRes year, student will progress into the 1st year of their PhD. 

Students are given a choice of over 30 PhD projects for their consideration, as well being encouraged to source their own projects. Many of the students continue to build on the work done during the Short Project 2 as well as taking the opportunity to go in a completely new direction.

PhD, Years 2–4

The PhD is probationary for the first year, with the students being expected to write a first year report due the following summer, which will be reviewed by the supervisor and advisor as to whether they recommend the student continues on to year 2.

During these years students are still required to participate in a range of CDT based activites such as conferences and additional trainings.
