ESRC Co-funded Studentships

Co-funded and Collaborative Studentships are doctoral projects which are jointly and collaboratively run by both academic and non-academic organisations.

What's on offer?

  • UBEL DTP studentships cover tuition fees at the UKRI rate and an annual maintenance stipend. For further information please refer to the preliminary application guide.
  • The non-academic co-funding organisation makes a contribution towards the maintenance stipend and tuition fees.
  • The awarded academic teams get to recruit a student to work on the project, who receives an ESRC Studentship which covers payment of tuition fees per year at the UKRI rate and an annual maintenance stipend.
  • Co-funded and Collaborative Studentships can be held on a full-time or part-time basis and within a 1+3, 4-year (Integrated PhD) or +3 programme, where an individual pathway allows for these structures.
  • Stipend and fee levels for academic year 2022/2023: a minimum ‘stipend’ of £19,668 and support for home tuition fees at £4,596.
