The School is offering 2 small bursaries for PhD studentships to cover full-time fees (at the Home/EU rate) and a small maintenance award of £3940 over three years to commence in September 2012. Please note that EU and overseas applicants are only eligible for a tuition fee studentship.
In considering your application, we will give preference to applicants who were submitted by the School for ESRC funding but who were unsuccessful, and to those whose proposal has been developed in detail with a prospective supervisor, and which fits the research priorities of the School.
Competition is likely to be very strong and you therefore need to ensure that your prospective supervisor supports your application and can provide a positive endorsement of it.
Application deadline is 30th May 2012. You must let Helen Joinson know that you wish your PhD application to be considered for a School of Education research studentship before this date (firstname.lastname@example.org).
