World leading research
As a world-leading research institute, The University of Nottingham has attracted funding from the research councils to lead or be a partner in Doctoral Training Programmes, which aim to produce the next generation of research leaders.
Our Doctoral Training Programmes present some of the best opportunities for doctoral studies available internationally. Aligned to key areas of research focus, both academically and commercially, Doctoral Training Programmes are setting a new benchmark for the provision of doctoral training and quality of graduate researchers themselves.
With the tailored approach toward doctoral researchers, you will be uniquely prepared to meet the demands of working on the most pressing research challenges in your chosen field.
We also offer a wide variety of postgraduate opportunities outside the Doctoral Training Programmes. For more information, see our postgraduate prospectus.
The experience has been a great insight into the digital economy outside of academia. Working in a vibrant community of multi-disciplinary researchers at the Pervasive Media Studio has given me the opportunity to meet people who are not just developing cutting edge technologies but using them to engage audiences in innovative ways.
Thanks to the internship I have gained a vast number of new technical skills and new opinions of technology, many of which will help with my PhD studies.
- Tim Pearce (Horizon DTC) on his internship at Calvium, who provide tools and consultancy to people with limited technical expertise.
Gilad worked closely with me for the period of the internship, during which he provided valuable insight into how the emerging identity management market would affect Experian and where Experian could play in this going forward. This involved working directly with Experian's UK Managing Director, who recognised and respected Gilad's contribution.
I have retained Gilad since the internship as a satellite member of my strategy team, as I value his ongoing input into where we take this exciting new proposition.

The Horizon CDT has helped overcome this bias: our cohort 1 student, Emily Webber, had a psychology background and was of immediate use to the Vernacular Geography team; second cohort students Min Zhang and Mercedes Torres have CS backgrounds which we were able to apply to problems related to Linked Data and Image Processing.
