South West Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership
The SouthWest Biosciences Doctoral Training Partnership (SWBio DTP; formerly the SWDTP) is one of a limited number of doctoral training partnerships funded by the BBSRC to provide PhD training across the UK in two key areas:
- Agriculture and food security.
- World-class bioscience.
The partnership, made up of the Universities of Bath, Bristol (lead), Cardiff and Exeter, along with Rothamsted Research, offers approximately 23 studentships a year.
The scheme provides students with excellent cross-disciplinary research training in line with the current BBSRC strategy.
Students are exposed to the expertise of all the partners by visiting / using their facilities, taking part in joint conferences, workshops and taught modules.
To further collaboration across the partnership, inter-institutional PhD projects are availiable that build on the expertise of each partner.
