AI for the study of Environmental Risks (AI4ER)

UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training
 

The AI4ER CDT can offer funded studentships to excellent UK and EU students eligible for UKRI studentship awards depending on the status of the student. We can also offer full or partial scholarships to exceptional international students.

The UKRI AI4ER CDT studentships cover UK University fees and an annual student maintenance stipend (which is set in accordance with the national minimum stipends). In addition, the studentships include a budget for approved MRes/PhD project-specific travel costs e.g for a secondment with an Academic or Industrial Partner. Funding will normally be for four years but will be dependent upon the successful completion of the MRes programme, a PhD continuation assessment and fulfilment of first year PhD registration requirements.
