There are many benefits to joining us as a student at the Centre.
Studentship financial package
As a student at the Sustainable Hydrogen Centre for Doctoral Training you'll receive the following financial benefits:
You will receive a tax-free stipend of £17,509 per year.
We can award a limited number of studentships to international applicants, which will cover their fees.
Research training and support grant
Each student receives a support grant to cover purchase of a laptop and consumable items needed to undertake research - e.g: software, hardware, small equipment - as well as registration and travel, to research meetings and international conferences.
In addition to taught and research training elements we've put in place activities to support you and your wellbeing, including:
Set-up by our students this scheme sees current CDT students paired as a 'buddy' for new ones. They act as a contact point for the duration of the course.
The SusHy CDT team are here to support you both personally and academically throughout your PhD journey, to make sure everything is in place for you to succeed.
Monthly meetings between students and staff take place, to discuss EDI issues and put forward EDI events for SusHy CDT to run.
As a student with us you'll have access to facilities and expertise at all four partner universities which make-up the Centre, not just your home university.
This fund is to enable students to attend a SusHy activity they would not otherwise have been able to make, because of an EDI issue restricting their ability to travel.
Female Stakeholder mentor
Female students will have a female mentor from the business community, able to share valuable insights.
Access to companies and research organisations
With our links to industry you'll be able to gain increased expertise and knowledge.
Our stakeholder events usually take place twice a year. It's your opportunity to connect with our industrial partners and share information. We run stakeholder challenges and a Young Entrepreneurial Scheme with stakeholders.
These enable you to collaborate on a specific area. For example, students have previously taken part in a power trader energy workshop.
We hold an Annual Conference allowing students to present their latest results to their peers, the SusHy CDT academics and stakeholders.
