This studentship is an ‘open’ award. Applicants must approach a potential supervisor before submitting their application to confirm that there is appropriate supervisory capacity within the University and to discuss their draft application. Information on the research interests of our staff can be found on the Swansea University webpages.
This pathway will leverage excellent provision and research in sociological methods training at Swansea, to build capacity and realize a networked all-Wales strategy for doctoral training in Sociology and STS, drawing upon FtF, hybrid and blended approaches. Pathway strengths include centres and other UKRI investments, ADR Wales, Centre for Ageing and Dementia Research.
Sociology/STS is an emerging disciplinary strength at Swansea University that currently sits within UoA20, with pockets of excellence that speak to WGSSS crosscutting themes. This is a merger of two DTP2 pathways, that are adjacent in disciplinary terms, with an extension to include Bangor and Swansea, as well as Cardiff.
To receive ESRC studentship funding, you must have qualifications or experience equal to an honours degree at a first or upper second-class level, or a master's from a UK academic research organisation.
Students with non-traditional academic backgrounds are also welcome to apply.
WGSSS studentships are available to home and international students.
