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:
Collaborative and Joint Studentships
We also offer a number of Collaborative and Joint Studentships involving research or other activities with external public, private or third sector organisations.
Full details for each project, application deadlines and how to apply are on the Midlands Graduate School website.
Studentships include paid home/EU tuition fees and an annual tax-free stipend of £15,285 (2020/21). Find out more about the UKRI doctoral stipend.
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. See the Midlands Graduate School website for full eligibility criteria.
Entry requirements will depend on award length.
- For 1+3 awards, you should have a 2:1 degree or higher in a relevant discipline
- For +3 awards, you will need to show masters-level qualification in core research methods
