The E3 DTP, based at The University of Edinburgh and led by the School of GeoSciences, brings together 28 partners and over 200 supervisors with research expertise spanning the full spectrum of earth and environmental sciences.
These enable us to provide the best opportunities for students to develop scientifically and personally through exposure to different research cultures and training programmes.
The E3 DTP offers fully-funded PhD studentships for a minimum of 3,5 years (42 months). This includes stipend and fees (indexed on the RCUK rate) and research costs. Part-time study is also available. The studentships are regulated by the RCUK Terms and Conditions .
