Our programme

We accept a total of 15 students each year; 6 at UoN and UCL and 3 at SSPC. Whilst all students complete core training modules, there are differences between the UoN/UCL and SSPC pathways. 

Students at UCL and UoN undertake a 3-month reseach project and a 3-month industry placement in Year 1 whereas those at SSPC embark on their PhD project immediately at the start of Year 1.

All students have access to the same high quality training and networking opportunities throughout their 4-years of study.
