Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security for the Everyday

Welcome to the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Cyber Security for the Everyday at Royal Holloway.

The Centre was first established in 2013, and has as its main objective to develop cohorts of multidisciplinary researchers with a broad understanding of cyber security and a strong appreciation of the interplay between technical and social issues.

Research in the CDT will address challenges concerning:

  • the technologies deployed in digital systems that people use, sometimes inadvertently, every day.
  • the everyday societal experience and practice of security.

The CDT is centred around Royal Holloway's Information Security Group and partners with departments throughout the institution.  CDT researchers follow a four-year PhD programme. The first year consists of comprehensive multidisciplinary cyber security training. The remaining three years focus on research in an advanced topic in the field of cyber security. 

In each annual cohort, we award approximately ten fully-funded PhD studentships (four years of enhanced stipend and fees). We welcome applications from candidates with undergraduate and/or masters qualifications in a wide range of technical and social disciplines of relevance to cyber security. 

We are now CLOSED for applications for candidates wishing to start with the CDT in September 2019. Applications to commence on the programme in September 2020 will open in Autumn 2019.
