Doctoral studentship applications: quality and quantity

9 February 2018

We have had an extraordinary number of high quality competitive applications for the ESRC doctoral studentships this year proposing highly contemporary cutting edge research projects.

In addition to having a strong hand to put forward for the ESRC competition, we have nominated one PhD and one EdD for the China CSC studentship competition.

Many of the studentship applicants are graduates of our own Masters programmes. The strength of the field is testament to the background work of many academic colleagues seeking out, encouraging and supporting individuals with academic promise and relevant research interests. Special thanks go to Angeline Barrett in co-ordinating this work as well as Liz Roberts and Gina Biggs in the Student Services Office, for their efficient processing of a large number of applications in recent days.
