Collaborative and Joint Studentships

In addition to the pathway specific studentships, the Midlands Graduate School DTP will offer a number of Collaborative Studentships involving research or other activities with external public, private or third sector organisations. As part of the Midlands Graduate School, we also offer a number of Joint ESRC DTP Studentships. Students will be fully registered and hosted at one of the Midlands Graduate School institutions, but will have a second supervisor at another MGS institution.

Applications for our Collaborative and Joint projects for October 2020 entry will be made available here in early February 2020.
