City, University of London and the South-East Network for Social Science invite applications for Economic and Social Research Council PhD studentship awards.
The South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) is one of only 14 Doctoral Training Partnerships accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council. The SeNSS consortium is formed of 10 leading UK universities, all of which are engaged in cutting-edge social science research and training.
Awards are offered within the following fields:
- Business and Management
As a SeNSS student you will have opportunities and access to training and development activities across the consortium.
If you are successful in attracting a SeNSS studentship you will:
- Have your fees paid and receive a stipend to cover your living expenses. You can see the full SeNSS eligibility criteria here.
- Be eligible to apply for further financial support for training and research expenses, such as conference trips, overseas fieldwork and learning a language or other skill integral to your research project
- Benefit from an inspiring research training environment that empowers you to develop your skills and knowledge and contribute to City's body of research Programme
- Benefit from City's location in central London which puts you at the heart of business, finance, the creative industries, law and government.
How to apply
1+3 applicants must apply for both our MSc Research Methods course and a PhD in either Economics or Sociology by the application deadline.
You must make clear in both applications that they are being submitted jointly. If you wish to be considered only for a +3 studentship, you need only apply for a PhD.
Once you have submitted your application, you will be informed about the password to access the SeNSS application form.
Current PhD students are also able to apply for SeNSS funding, provided that you have 50% or more of your period of registration remaining when the studentship funding starts (usually on 1 October each year).
Applications for full- and part-time study are equally welcomed.
Full details on the application process are available on the SeNSS website.
Applications to SeNSS must be submitted via HEIApply
Note that you must make both an application to SeNSS (closing date 12.00 Tuesday 25th January) and an application for your chosen programme at City.
Applicants wishing to be considered for SeNSS funding at City must have submitted their programme application to us by 12.00 on Tuesday 18th January.
