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 2021 are now open.

Further information regarding the different projects available for entry in October 2021 are available below.
