There are a small number of funded 1+3 Faculty of Social Sciences studentships, providing funding for an eligible Master’s followed by a PhD where a candidate requires more research training prior to commencing their PhD. There is no separate application process for this additional funding, which is awarded following a Faculty-wide competition, based on recommendations from Schools. Funding for a Master’s component of research training is based on an academic judgement of a candidate’s research training needs. This studentship also covers fees and a maintenance grant at standard UKRI rates. This parallels the SENSS studentship scheme.
