What are CASE studentships?

CASE (Co-operative Awards in Science and Engineering) studentships involve post-graduate students studying for a PhD through research with both an academic institution and a commercial company. The student is predominantly based with the academic institution, but the research project is relevant to the needs of the industrial partner. The industrial partner is expected to provide joint supervision of the student, a financial contribution to the project and relevant industrial placement(s) during the four years of the project.
