Funding Opportunities for Research Students
Applications are invited for the following awards for 2014-15.
When you apply, you will need to indicate your likely source of financial support during your studies. You should therefore investigate possible sources of finance as soon as you can. Applications are invited for the following Doctoral awards for 2014-15.
If you are planning to apply for an ESRC studentship, please note that if your applications to study with us reaches us very close to the ESRC deadline of 3 February 2014, we may not be able to process your PhD application in time.
Please note that, to apply for any of these awards other than the ESRC awards, you must already have applied for *and been offered a place* (conditional or unconditional) on one of our Doctoral programmes. Exceptionally, you may appy for an ESRC award after applying for a place on a doctoral programme, but before receiving confirmation that you have been accepted.
All awards are, in principle, open to part-time as well as full-time students.
