Cambridge NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships

Graduate Research Opportunities

All NERC Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) have agreed to adhere to an annual universal acceptance deadline for PhD studentship offers. For the 2019/20 intake this date is Wednesday 20 March at 12:00 pm. Please see the letter below from NERC.

The purpose of the annual universal acceptance deadline is to ensure that PhD applicants who have applied for multiple studentship opportunities, and may therefore receive multiple offers, do not have to make a decision on the studentship they wish to accept before knowing the outcome of all of their applications.

Applicants who receive a PhD studentship offer from a NERC DTP or CDT for the 2018/19 academic year are therefore not required to accept an offer formally before this date unless they wish to do so.
