The ESRC Competition is managed through nomination by each School. Candidates interested in being considered for an ESRC award should contact the relevant School for the Pathway they are interested in studying, and should have already made an application to the University of Birmingham.
Different departments may have different deadlines, but candidates are advised to contact them as early as possible, and preferably by mid-January, to request nomination.
Awards are available to home and EU students only, with the exception of Economics, for which international candidates may be considered. Full details on eligibility for these awards can be found in the Candidate Guidelines below.
Successful candidates will hear the outcome of their application in April 2013.
