Studying with us at the Franklin

Applications for 2024-25 will open in October 2023.

Franklin students work on highly interdisciplinary projects across our research themes with real-world impact, world-leading research supervisors, access to industrial collaborations and top universities from across the UK and beyond-state-of-the-art technologies.

Students will be primarily based in our Franklin Hub at Harwell for the duration of their PhD.

In their first year, students will be registered with our training partner, University of Edinburgh. After completing their training, students will develop their 12-week research projects. Following the successful completion of their Year 1 project, students will register at their supervisor’s university for Years 2-4, which will become the awarding body for their degree.

The Franklin PhD Programme, funded by UKRI-EPSRC.

Applications for the next academic year will open during Autumn 2023, please check back to apply at this time.
