Before you apply to the Nottingham ESRC DTC, please contact the School in which you intend to study first (see the list of key academic contacts for each School for further advice and information). You will need to hold an offer of a place to study from the School and have already provided two academic references as part of the University's general application procedure.
The main part of the studentships application form will be the research proposal, it is therefore very important that you identify a potential supervisor within the relevant School to discuss and agree your proposal in advance. Your completed application should be submitted to School funding contacts listed for each research theme supported by the Nottingham ESRC DTC.
The ESRC have produced a very detailed and helpful guide outlining everything you need to know regarding funding within Doctoral Training Centres.
