EngD student benefits

You will be part of the largest, most experienced doctoral training centre in the sector. You will have all the benefits of connecting with our current students and alumni, our two universities and our network of companies. We aim for you to work closely with and in some of the most exciting high-tech companies in the world, not for a token short-term placement but fully-embedded, usually for three years.

In addition to company partners in the animation, VFX and games sectors (for example MPC, Ninja Theory, Double Negative and Sony), we also partner with companies who use these skills in other business areas (NHS, Perkin Elmer Ltd and the National Trust).

You will receive one of the most generous, tax-free stipends in the UK. Your University fees will be paid for you. You will have access to funds for travel, attendance at events and skills development tailored to you. You will have input into the centre via student representatives on our Project Board and benefit from company input to our Professional Advisory Board.

We are the only national centre in our sector offering the very special Engineering Doctorate. The practical experience that goes with the EngD, the chance to network with all our companies, the support of your cohort and your own demonstrated ability; these all add up to great career prospects.

And you will become part of the growing CDE family, one of the friendliest groups around!  But don't just take our word for it, check out the videos below where some of the CDE students highlight why they chose the Centre for Digital Entertainment.
