Applying to study with the MGS DTP

The competition for pathway-specific ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership Studentships commencing in October 2021 is now closed.

For information on ESRC Studentships from October 2022 entry please visit the Midlands Graduate School website.

The Midlands Graduate School DTP makes an annual award of a large number of studentships to outstanding applicants across the Social Sciences. The studentships are linked to disciplinary and inter-disciplinary training pathways, and some have a built-in element of collaboration. 

A Masters is not a prerequisite for studying at the Midlands Graduate School DTP. Students are able to apply directly from undergraduate programmes and we ring-fence a number of studentship awards for students applying straight from an undergraduate degree. A range of training programmes are available based on an assessment of the applicant’s prior learning and training needs, including a 1+3 award option with a Masters continuing onto PhD study.

All studentships can be offered on a full or part time basis.

Application information and Eligibility criteria can be found on the MGS ESRC DTP site.
