Aura Centre for Doctoral Training

Fully-funded PhD scholarships
in offshore wind energy and the environment.

Recruiting NOW for our September 2021 Cohort

If you choose to carry out your postgraduate studies with us, you will become part of a vibrant, forward-thinking research community.

Each year, we offer up to 20 Core Scholarships, comprising funding for first-year PG-Dip training, during which students develop their research proposal. Followed by three years full time PhD research at one of the partner institutions.

We also work closely with key offshore wind sector organisations to develop funded Industry Partner Scholarships. Students on this pathway take their PG-Dip year with the rest of the cohort before embarking on a 3-year PhD at a specified institution, supported by their Industry sponsor. We currently have two co-funded projects on offer with partners the Offshore Renewable Energy Catapult.

Applications are OPEN for Core and Industry Scholarships enrolling September 2021. Please apply by 31 December 2020. See information on How to Apply.
