Funded PhD Programme (European/UK Students Only)

About the Programme

The Faculty of Wellbeing, Education and Language Studies (WELS) is offering full-time funded PhD studentships for an October 2020 start.

The PhD programme is located in an environment that supports world-leading quality research. In the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) the UK government endorsed our research as overwhelmingly world-leading and internationally excellent, with significant and wide-reaching impact. Research takes place across the three Schools of WELS and the Institute of Educational Technology. We also have a large group of international PhD students who are an essential part of our research community.
Research is conducted in the following areas which adopt innovative methodological approaches:

• Children, Young People & Families
• Educational Technology
• Health, Wellbeing and Social care
• Language and Literacies
• Transformative Education

What unites our research approach is a strong commitment to interdisciplinarity and a social justice ethos. Our research aims to enable communities and individuals to thrive in an increasingly demanding and unequal world. We have the flexibility to support truly interdisciplinary and innovative research that makes a difference to people's lives.

We strongly encourage you to look at our research web pages http://wels.open.ac.uk/research and https://iet.open.ac.uk/research to see the nature and scope of our research.

If you feel you have the drive and intellectual curiosity to pursue postgraduate research as part of that community and you have a great idea for a doctoral study, then we want to hear from you!

Funding is available for UK, EU and international students. Fully-funded PhD studentships will include fees and maintenance for three years, depending on satisfactory progress. Anticipated stipend for 2019/2020 is approximately £14900 (stipend for 2018/19 was £14777).

Closing date: 5.00 pm on Friday 31st January 2020

We anticipate interviews will take place in early March 2020.
