One of the major benefits of applying to do a PhD with a Doctoral Training Partnership, is that your course fees are paid and you receive the UKRI minimum stipend (living grant). You also receive a grant for research costs and training.
The DTP in Environmental Research at Oxford welcomes applications from a diverse range of candidates and if you are from a low-income household this should not hold you back from applying. We hold residential workshops so that candidates who otherwise wouldn't have the opportunity, can spend time in Oxford, meet students and staff, and experience a little of what it is like to be here. We also support EDI applicants during the admissions process with online admissions workshops.
The DTP in Environmental research admits candidates to one of three streams: Biodiversity, Ecology & Evolutionary Processes; The Dynamic Earth, Surface Processes and Natural Hazards and The Physical Climate System. Find out more about these streams and the key areas within each one below. Use these pages to identify potential supervisors you might wish to work with and you can email them to discuss possible projects. You can also find details for current students using the People menu. Our students are a friendly bunch and happy to answer questions about DTP and Oxford life if you drop them an email.
