The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Computer Science is a division of the School of Computer Science at the University of Manchester. Its function is to provide PhD research programmes according to a new four year model accepted by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) as part of its new focus on the future of PhD training within the UK. Each programme consist of an initial `foundation period' of six months followed by a 3.5 year period of focused PhD level research, carried out under the supervision of a PhD supervisor.
Further details about the programme can be found here.
PhD study through the Centre for Doctoral Training has benefits both in terms of the value-added activities offered as part of the programme, but also as a result of the unique student experience on offer.
In the first year, the students will be trained as a cohort, and will have a wide range of activities together. In the second and subsequent years students will become part of a research group or project team, participating in research group activities, and ultimately giving presentations at international conferences and workshops associated with their research area. However, a number of activities will run across the latter years of the programme to maintain group cohesion including a mentoring scheme, graduate seminar series and the use of social networking and e-learning tools.

Scholarships and bursaries
We expect to be able to offer in the region of 15 fully funded studentships for UK and EU students. Studentships pay all tuition fees and a full stipend for 4 years.
Currently, funding is not available for International students wishing to join the CDT programme
