In the CDT there is the opportunity to speak to a wide range of people with a variety of specialities, thus allowing you to discuss ideas and thoughts on multi/inter disciplinary issues which is a key skill in industry.

Everyone has come from a different background and therefore has a individual speciality which they can share with the others in the cohort.

Being part of a cohort means that you get a sense of 'being in it together' rather than being alone. The fact that there is a whole cohort of people starting at the same time encourages a very supportive atmosphere and gives many opportunities to discuss ideas with people from different backgrounds. It is also very beneficial for settling into a new city and working culture having a cohort around you.

Robert Iredale

The broad range of educational backgrounds and nationalities within a cohort really diversifies the approaches to problem solving. Most interestingly, the research collaboration opportunities increase exponentially when the students come from different institutes across the world.
