Advice about applying specifically for a studentship in the School of Politics and International Relations
The most pertinent eligibility details are:• You may apply with or without having a Master’s degree;• The competition is open to Home and International students (but two-thirds of the studentships will be reserved for Home students);• Applicants must have (or be on course to have) at least a 2:1 at UG level (but one of the criteria on which applications will be judged is academic achievement, and candidates with a first-class degree are automatically scored more highly than those with a 2:1);• The project must fall within the ESRC’s scientific remit.
Anyone who thinks that they might apply should contact Ben Holland (Benjamin.Holland@nottingham.ac.uk) in the first instance.
