Education at York has been awarded an ESRC PhD Scholarship as part of the Education cluster of training pathways within the White Rose Doctoral Training Centre, a major collaboration between the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield and York with a total of 48 ESRC studentships per year over 5 years. The White Rose Doctoral Training Centre is one of the largest consortia in the country and offers a wealth of supervisory expertise across the social sciences as well as numerous training opportunities, particularly focused upon maximising the social and economic benefits of research. Students will work together with others studying in their discipline from across Yorkshire and have numerous opportunities to develop their interdisciplinary networks and expertise.
This fully-funded 3-year scholarship will cover maintenance and fees for UK candidates, or fees only for EU candidates, starting from Autumn 2012.
The competition is open to UK and EU students who have completed (or expect to complete by the end of the current academic year) a Masters or BA qualification in Education or in a related discipline such as Linguistics, Psychology, Sociology.
The deadline for applications for this studentship will be 3 February 2012.
