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 studentships across the full breadth of 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 training pathways at the University:
Studentships include paid home/EU tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend (£14,777 in 2018/19). 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.
Entry requirements will depend on award length. For 1+3 awards, candidates should have a 2:1 degree or higher in a relevant discipline. For +3 awards, candidates will need to show masters-level qualification in core research methods. Please refer to the guidance notes (PDF) for further infromation.
