Awarded by the UK Research Council, CASE Studentships provide funding for the most able students to undertake three years of study for a PhD degree, five years for part time awards and work on a project 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.
