North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership

Less than 2 weeks to studentship deadline

The deadline to apply for studentship funding from the NWSSDTP is the 3rd February 2017. Applications are encouraged for doctoral study (our +2/+3 scheme) and master’s + doctoral study (our 1+3 / 2+2 scheme). We fund studentships through 19 different pathways, which span the social sciences.

We also encourage applications which align with our strategised training routes: Advanced Quantitative Methods, Longitudinal Studies using ESRC Datasets, and Interdisciplinary Data Science.

We provide a maintenance stipend and fees, plus the studentship opens up the opportunity to apply for additional funding toward research expenses, fieldwork, internships and overseas institutional visits.

NWSSDTP Website Launched!

The new North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership website was launched on the 8th November 2016. Initially, this is primarily being used to publicise the upcoming CASE and Standard Studentship competitions, but a number of further developments will be made to the website over the coming academic year, prior to the first cohort of NWSSDTP students starting in October 2017.

The NWDTC twitter account has also been relaunched for the NWSSDTP at 

Feedback and comments are very welcome – please email 

Current NWDTC-funded students should refer to the existing NWDTC website for information.
