However, applicants are strongly advised to contact a prospective supervisor as soon as possible to discuss their research ideas and to begin to develop their proposal and application. To assist with this process, University of Dundee has an internal deadline of 19th December, for potential applicants to indicate their interest and make contact with potential supervisors.
SGSSS funds postgraduate students with outstanding academic backgrounds and research potential. All applicants are expected to meet the ESRC Eligibility criteria summarized in the ESRC Funding Guide. Applicants must hold or be predicted a First or a good 2:1 undergraduate degree in the social sciences, or have relevant comparable experience. Additionally, if you are applying for a +3 award then you must also hold or be completing a Masters degree in the social sciences, which satisfies the ESRC 2015 methods training requirements.
An applicant must be a United Kingdom citizen or be a resident of another European Union country in all subject areas. European Union applicants who have not been resident in the UK for the last three (3) years before the start of their studentship are only eligible for a fees-only award.
