Funded Centres

At the University of Exeter, we have a number of highly respected Research Council-funded Doctoral Training Partnerships. 

These research centres offer the following benefits for prospective doctoral and PhD students:

  • increased access to funding opportunities in the form of studentships;
  • research supervision and training from more than one institution, providing a more well-rounded PhD experience, helping you to produce outstanding research which contributes to real-world issues;
  • opportunities to engage in research collaborations with leading researchers from across the partnership.

You can find out more about these partnerships and centers on our dedicated webpages for Funded Centres here.
