The University of Nottingham has joined forces with five other universities across the Midlands to form the Midlands Graduate School ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership.
Welcoming its first cohort in 2017, the partnership offers postgraduate across the full breadth social sciences.
Nottingham is a world-class research institution and ESRC-funded students benefit from training in a wide range of social science research methods and skills, as well as broader capabilities such as communication and leadership.
Opportunities are available across the following pathways at the University:
- Applied Linguistics
- Area Studies
- Digital Society
- Economic and Social History
- Mental Health and Wellbeing
- Management and Business Studies
- Political Science and International Relations
- Social Policy and Social Work
- Socio-legal Studies
Studentships include paid home/EU tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend (£14,553 in 2017/18). These are restricted to home students only, though EU students can apply for a fees only award. International students may be eligible to apply to the Economics pathway. Please see the Midlands Graduate School website for full eligibility criteria.
