CASE Programme

Looking for a PhD which gives you the opportunity to work with an industry partner?

Our CASE studentships will give you the opportunity to work in partnership with industry, undertaking an industry placement and benefiting from an industrial supervisor as part of your supervisory team.

You will benefit from joining the BBSRC DTP community of over 220 postgraduate researchers, partaking in a broad range of training opportunities including the annual DTP conference.

You can explore the projects on offer using the table below - click on the titles to read more about the project, and on the supervisor's name to contact them for more information. You can apply for up to three CASE projects, as well as making an application to the DTP's standard scheme using our online form - you only need to submit one form for all of your project selections.
