Studentship Competitions

UBEL offers fully funded and co-funded ESRC studentships.

The UBEL DTP’s fully funded ESRC studentships cover full payment of tuition fees per year and an annual maintenance stipend.
Co-funded and Collaborative Studentships are doctoral projects which are jointly and collaboratively run by both academic and non-academic organisations.
Fellowships are aimed at those in the immediate postdoctoral stage of their career, to provide the opportunity to consolidate their PhD through developing publications, their networks, and their research and professional skills.

Administrative Data Research UK (ADR UK) Studentships are fully funded, covering full payment of tuition fees per year, an enhanced maintenance stipend and 3 month placement. 

The UBEL DTP has 25 different disciplinary pathways in 7 groupings across 5 London institutions. Each pathway provides a range of study routes (+3; 1+3; 2+3 & +4) with over 80 MRes, MSc and MA programmes attached and accommodates both full-time and part-time students.

UBEL are committed to addressing inequalities and widening participation in our doctoral training partnership.
