When do they start

The studentships start in September 2017.

Further study

These studentships are intended to provide a route in to the AHRC-funded Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership. It is crucial that applicants make a clear case for how the Masters will lead to an intended PhD programme.

The Masters studentships do not guarantee subsequent doctoral funding, for which a separate application must be made.
