Professional Internships for PhD Students (PIPS)

A key component of our Doctoral Training Partnership programme (DTP) is the Professional Internship for PhD Students (PIPS) – a 3-month integrated placement to provide DTP PhD students the opportunity to carry out a work placement unrelated to their doctoral research during their PhD. Such experience is important both to help early career researchers understand the context of their research and to expose them to the range of opportunities in which they can apply their PhD skills and training after they graduate.
