Apply for a funded opportunity across our research themes
For 2023/24, we are delighted to be able to offer two fully-funded PhD studentships, covering full fees and an annual stipend. The first is open to all new applicants submitting a proposal prior to 12 May 2023, to commence in October 2023 and is not subject linked.
The second comes under the title of ‘Learner engagement and success in higher education – concepts, metrics, interventions’. The preferred student should be a UK domicile student (paying home fees) with experience in theory development, strong empirical skills and a passion for using those skills to investigate the relationship between learner engagement and success. We particularly encourage those from racially minoritised backgrounds and/or lower participation areas to apply. This studentship will be fully funded for three years, and will include a stipend for at least the first year.
