Swansea Science Doctoral Training Centre
Swansea Science is a community committed to world-class research that has a positive impact globally. The Science Doctoral Training Centre fosters a growing, vibrant community of PhD students. This community is a key dynamic in our drive to be the most creative place to do science.
The DTC provides a competitive advantage to our postgraduate researchers, preparing them for industry and academe that increasingly looks for "T" shaped thinkers: deeply skilled in a discipline but who can connect broadly with others.
