Studentship benefits


 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 £19,568 per year.


Tuition fees

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:

Peer support

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.


Team support

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.


EDI meetings

Monthly meetings between students and staff take place, to discuss EDI issues and put forward EDI events for SusHy CDT to run.


Four universities 

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.


Professional membership to organisations

You can receive free membership to our partner societies, the Women's Engineering Society (WES) and Women into Science and Engineering (WISE). All students can become a member.


EDI Fund

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.

Stakeholder support 

More than 90 companies and research organisations are supporting the Centre, providing access to a wealth of market leading experts and future employment opportunities.


Stakeholder events

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 Entrepreneurs Scheme with stakeholders.



Academic collaboration


These enable you to collaborate on a specific area. For example, students have previously taken part in a power trader energy workshop.


 SusHy Conference 

We hold an Annual Conference allowing students to present their latest results to their peers, the SusHy CDT academics and stakeholders.
