ESRC Doctoral Training Centre
Wales’ leading universities have won a multi-million pound award to train top-level social scientists on a range of issues affecting society today. Postgraduates will be trained in a range of important disciplines, including social policy, psychology, economics, environmental planning and linguistics. Cardiff University will lead a Wales consortium with Aberystwyth, Bangor and Swansea in creating the Doctoral Training Centre, funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
Other subject areas which will attract the fully funded studentships include education, human geography, management and business studies, political science and international studies, science and technology studies, social work and social care, criminology, sociology, bilingualism, language based area studies and empirical studies in law.
Full details of the studentships and how to apply will be available soon via the websites of the collaborating universities. The studentships will start at the Wales Doctoral Training Centre in October 2011.
