Nottingham ESRC Doctoral Training Centre
   
   
  

Welcome

In 2010 the ESRC established a national network of 21 institutional and consortia level Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs), through which it now delivers all of its studentship funding. ESRC DTCs cover the full disciplinary range of the social sciences as well as areas of interdisciplinary research.

Over a period of six years, the Nottingham Doctoral Training Centre has supported around 200 students to undertake cutting-edge interdisciplinary research that provide insights into some of the world’s biggest challenges.

From October 2017, ESRC scholarships at Nottingham will be delivered through the Midlands Graduate School ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership
