NINE DTP award-holders have the costs of their tuition fees paid and/or waived for the full duration of the period of study. This includes all fees for those candidates who need to undertake a Masters course, or a six-month research methods course.
A NINE DTP ESRC award also provides a tax-free stipend, set at £14,553 per year in 2017-18. These monies are paid to the student directly, traditionally on a monthly or quarterly basis, to cover living costs.
In 2016, the universities of Durham, Newcastle, Northumbria, Queen’s, Sunderland, Teesside and Ulster received accreditation from the Economic and Social Research Council to form a Doctoral Training Partnership.
The Northern Ireland and North East (NINE) Doctoral Training Partnership will receive funding of over £2 million a year from the ESRC to fund Doctoral Training across our partner institutions, with over 50 studentships on offer each year between 2017 and 2022.
With a total of 16 distinct training pathways on offer, with both single and multi-disciplinary foci, the Partnership is dedicated to creating a centre of excellence in Doctoral Training across the North East of England and Northern Ireland, bringing together our institutions, students and partners to create a vibrant and dynamic environment in which innovative economic and social science research can thrive.
