Collaborative or CASE Studentships fund the most able students to undertake three years of study for a PhD degree, five years for part time awards. These projects are jointly designed and supervised by a University department and a company, who can be from the public, private or voluntary sectors, ranging from multinationals, SMEs, local authorities and registered charities. The student will spend at least 3 months during the period of the award at the company’s premises. CASE stands for Collaborative Awards in Science and Engineering, but the studentships are now awarded across all the fields of research supported by the UK Research Councils. The company partner is required to contribute a minimum of a third of the Research Councils contribution.
