As part of our commitment to research excellence, we offer a number of fully-funded PhD studentships each year.
We're currently accepting applications in the following areas:
Some of our academic schools offer bursaries for research students, either on a fees-only basis or with a tax-free maintenance allowance. In general, only home or EU fees are covered, and international (non-EU) students would be required to pay the difference between international (non-EU) and home or EU fees. Please contact the relevant academic school for details.
There are opportunities for our undergraduate students to get involved in the University's research activity. The SPUR programme gives students the chance to assist in research projects during the summer vacation. Look out for details through the student news emails.

If the UK is going to compete as a knowledge economy in the 21st Century, it needs a strong research and innovation ecosystem.
The new Doctoral Training Alliance (DTA), developed by a group of Alliance universities that includes Nottingham Trent University, builds on our research strengths and industry-focused ethos. The training will produce independent, highly employable researchers with knowledge, expertise and skills in strategically important research areas. It is the largest multi-partner and only nationwide initiative of its kind.
Last year we launched our first Doctoral Training Alliance in Applied Biosciences for Health at 14 universities.
Our second Doctoral Training Alliance offers a fully-funded postgraduate programme in Energy. Doctoral students will gain access to excellent research, an expert support network, and improved employment opportunities.
You'll benefit from the world-class facilities, supervisors and support at their home institution, as well as having the wider DTA community to collaborate and share expertise with.
UK and EU students are fully funded for up to three years, including a generous stipend of up to £14,000 per year plus travel and subsistence, to enable researchers to interact with colleagues across the Doctoral Training Alliance.
