The Kent School of Architecture and Planning’s PhD programme is going from strength to strength. We currently have twenty-eight PhD students; five of whom joined us in 2019/20, while further seven will join us in the next academic year. Indeed, this has been a very successful year for the school’s doctoral community: five students successfully completed (Bahar Badiee, Leonidas Tsichritzis, Maria Dimitriu, Ben Tosland and Timothy Fox-Godden), while of those new forthcoming students, five are the recipient of prestigious scholarships. These come from both the university’s consortia and co-tutelle partners, such as the Global Challenges Doctoral Competition (GCDC), the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council scholarship (EPSRC), and the recently introduced Kent-Lille co-tutelle, as well as from external funders, such as two Marie Sklodowska-Curie Early-career researchers in partnership with industry.
