26 September 2015
The months of September and October see the start of the new academic years at Heriot–Watt University and Loughborough University and students in our second cohort have now started their PhD journeys.
Their journey kicked off earlier in September by attending our induction programme in Scotland. The weather was overcast but dry with rays of sunshine emerging for our field trip to a local castle. This did not matter though as most of the week was spent preparing for the coming four years by getting to know themselves better and each other. Members of cohort 1 joined the newbies to share their experiences of a year with CDT-EI and it made them realise how much they have achieved in just one year.
