The Midlands Graduate School is an accredited Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). One of 14 such partnerships in the UK, the Midlands Graduate School is a collaboration between Aston University, University of Birmingham, University of Leicester, Loughborough University, University of Nottingham and University of Warwick.
The Midlands Graduate School is looking to recruit top quality social science PhD students to commence study in October 2020 across a range of subjects and interdisciplinary training pathways. Our ESRC studentships – covering fees, a maintenance stipend (subject to eligibility), and support for innovative research training – provide exceptional opportunities for high-achieving and motivated individuals, including opportunities for collaboration.
A Masters degree is not a prerequisite for applying to the Midlands Graduate School DTP, and a number of our studentship awards are specifically ring-fenced for students applying for funding straight from an undergraduate degree.
The MGS offers 17 different training pathways that span the following social science disciplines:
Types of awards:
Studentships are available as a +3 year (PhD), +3.5 year (PhD requiring 2 ESRC research skill modules) or 1+3 (4 year with a Masters leading directly to a PhD) award. All studentships are also available on a full-time or part-time basis, and are open to applicants straight from undergraduate study.
How to apply:
