Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security

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

The Centre was established in 2013, and has as its main objective to produce cohorts of highly-trained researchers with a broad understanding of cyber security.

The CDT is hosted by the Information Security Group (ISG), and provides multidisciplinary training to annual cohorts of around ten students each. The students follow a 4-year doctoral programme: the first phase consists of a taught component comprising 25 per cent of the programme. The remaining three years follow the more traditional path of doctoral studies, with each student undertaking research in an advanced topic in the field of cyber security. See the CDT Course of Study section below for more information about the programme.

CDT recruitment typically runs from November to April, to select students for the CDT cohort to start the following September. Selected applicants are awarded fully-funded PhD studentships (stipend and College fees) for four years. We consider applications from candidates with undergraduate and/or masters qualifications in a wide range of disciplines relevant to cyber security. 

***We are now closed for applications for students to start their PhD studies in September 2018***
