Studentships awarded in 2011

Ten new full-time and five part-time studentships were awarded for
doctoral study, starting in October 2011, in areas supported by our
thematic Centres and matching our range of supervisory expertise. At
least five of these studentships contribute explicitly to the
advancement of Cornwall’s knowledge economy by addressing business or
industry-focussed challenges. Two studentships are being funded from
the income gained by the institution in recognition of its research
quality, and will be expected to help strengthen the core research
themes of our Research & Innovation Centres.
