Do you have a business issue that requires long-term, in-depth exploration?

We provide opportunities to either sponsor or undertake a PhD project.

Co-funding a PhD project, or undertaking a PhD, over a three-five year period provides an opportunity to address a challenging business issue through in-depth, innovative research at the highest level.

PhDs represent the most prestigious research pathway, requiring unique, cutting-edge research to be conducted to the most rigorous of standards.

If you wanted to co-fund a PhD project, the cost of the project could be split between the university and your business. Supporting a PhD studentship could raise the profile of your business and help to position your business as a forerunner of your industry, engaged in innovative and rigorous research.
