Collaborative and Strategic Joint Studentships

In addition to our 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 Strategic 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 Collaborative, Strategic Joint and Project-Linked studentships for October 2024 entry are now open.

The deadline for academics wishing to submit a Collaborative or Strategic Joint proposal has now passed. Information on supervisor-led opportunities for entry in October 2025 will be made available around early October 2024.
