PhD Studentships in Data Science

Other fully funded PhD studentships available in speech technology and NLP as part of the new UKRI Centre for Doctoral Training in Natural Language Processing. This is a 4-year PhD programme that includes MSc-level coursework, and so is suitable for students coming directly from a Bachelor's degree. Funded by UKRI, the University of Edinburgh, and industry partners.

Masters Programmes

There are several Masters' programmes which act as excellent preparation for speech and language research.


We occasionally offer internships in CSTR. These are mainly for PhD students at other institutions, but we do consider undergraduate and Masters applicants. Opportunities change every year, so please contact us for more information.
