CDT Review Process
Once applications to the CDT in Celtic Languages have been received by the deadline of 23 February 2018, the applications and their HEI supporting statements will be read and assessed by the CDT Awards Committee, comprised of representatives from all of the 12 consortium HEIs. The recommendations of the awards committee will then be communicated to the CDT Executive, and the Executive will finalise the awards.
We envisage approximately 5 studentships being awarded for commencing study during 2018/19.
We aim to be able to announce awards and reserves in late April or early May, 2018.
