Oxford is the lead research institution for the Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership, whose open competition panel offers ESRC-studentships for Masters-to-DPhil or DPhil programmes.
We are able to submit a number of nominations for consideration. Additional studentships are available to be taken in the Department for the DPhil programme if the research makes extensive use of advanced quantitative methods
Please visit the site above to see what benefits are received by holders of ESRC studentships.
Please apply using the standard graduate application form, and confirm with the Department that you wish to be considered for an ESRC studentship.
Please ensure that you include a research proposal with your admissions application which can be incorporated within the 'Statement of Purpose' if applying for the 1+3 or 2+2 Master's courses. Please note: to be considered for an ESRC studentship award, you must apply by the January admissions application deadline.
