Queen Mary, University of London and Goldsmiths, University of London have successfully bid for accreditation by the Economic and Social research Council (ESRC) as a collaborative Doctoral Training Centre in the social sciences.
Over the next five years, 50 PhD students at the two universities will be fully-funded for their fees and living costs – 10 in each year – and this will be paid for by the Economic and Social Research Council. This represents two percent of the total allocation nationally and doubles the number available previously at the two universities.
The subjects available under the scheme include anthropology, cultural studies, business and management, economics, geography, media and communications, politics, psychology, socio-legal studies and sociology.
