ESRC SeNSS Studentships for PhD at University of Sussex in UK 2022

The University of Sussex offers a number of ESRC SeNSS Studentships for PhD via the South-East Network for Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership in the 2022 academic session.

ESRC SeNSS Studentships for PhD

You will work on a research project that you have devised and planned.

  • A competent academic supervision team will assist you with this project.
  • Working with an external partner (such as a company, a charity, or a think tank) may offer you data, equipment, or people for research, as well as extra funds for your studentship and/or an additional supervisor.

Worth of Award

Scholarships pay Ph.D. tuition fees in the United Kingdom (now £4,407 per year), a stipend (currently £15,285 per year), as well as certain research and training expenses.

  • Only UK level PhD expenses are covered by ESRC scholarships; however, a limited number of complete international scholarships may be offered.

ESRC SeNSS Studentships for PhD Requirements

  • Applicants must hold at least a UK upper second class honours degree or equivalent.
  • The scholarships will be awarded for a period of either three years for those with an ESRC recognised research training qualification or equivalent (+3) or four years (1+3) for those without.

According to UKRI student eligibility guidelines, SeNSS ESRC studentships are accessible to UK and Overseas/International students. Overseas students may account for up to 30% of each cohort of pupils.

You count as a UK student if you are :

  • a UK citizen who has lived in the UK or the EU for the previous three years before beginning your degree;
  • a European Union citizen having settled status in the United Kingdom;
  • an EU citizen with Pre-Settled status who has lived in the UK or EU for the previous three years before beginning your programme;
  • a student who has been granted Indefinite Leave to Remain in the United Kingdom;
  • a citizen of Ireland (due to a reciprocal agreement with the UK)

All other students (for example, EU citizens starting a Ph.D. in the UK) will be classified as Overseas students.
