Centre for Doctoral Training in Cyber Security

isg_graphicWelcome to Royal Holloway's Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Cyber Security. The Centre was established in 2013, with funding from the EPSRC, 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 will provide multidisciplinary training to three successive annual cohorts of around 10 students each, starting in October 2013. The students will follow a 4-year doctoral programme: the first phase consists of a taught component comprising 25% 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 page| for more information about the programme.

Applications for the 2014 CDT cohort (for students starting in Oct 2014) are now open.

We will be awarding 10 fully-funded studentships (stipend and college fees for four years) to outstanding candidates to join the CDT in October 2014.  We will consider applications from candidates with undergraduate and masters' qualifications in a wide range of disciplines, including, but not limited to, mathematics, computer science, and electrical and electronic engineering. Please see the Entry Requirements| and instructions on How to Apply| Funding is provided by the EPSRC, and thus is subject to eligibility conditions. For further details, please visit the CDT Funding page| .  

Closing date for receiving applications is the 30th March 2014. We will however assess applications on an ongoing basis, and we reserve the right to make an offer to outstanding candidates before the closing date.
