General Description

These Doctoral Studentships in the Social Sciences are funded by the ESRC through the Doctoral Training Centre. This Centre offers a range of subjects and interdisciplinary training pathways. These studentships are intended to enable students to afford the course. To this end, the studentships cover tuition fees, stipend and training support.


In order to qualify for stipend, the student must have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least three years and this must not have been solely for educational purposes (unless the student is a EU national). Furthermore, the student must have permission to reside permanently in the UK. If these conditions aren't met, outstanding students may be eligible for a fees-only award.
