Studentship Awards commence in October 2020 and will cover your tuition fees as well as a maintenance grant at the RCUK rate subject to UK residency requirements; and includes access to an additional Research Training Support Grant RTSG. There are other opportunities and benefits available to studentship holders, including internship opportunities.
Candidates should have an excellent academic background in the social sciences, holding a 1st or strong upper 2nd class degree; applications from those also holding a relevant research training Master’s degree (or an equivalent background in research training) will be considered for a +3 award.
The awards are available on either a 1+3 or +3 basis. A 1+3 studentship provides funding for four years (or part-time equivalent), completing a research training Masters in the 1st year, followed by 3 years research funding for a PhD. A +3 studentship provides funding for the three years PhD research study only (or part-time equivalent). To gauge whether your existing Masters degree would be enough for you to proceed directly to +3, please compare its coverage with our Masters in Language and Communication Research, https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/taught/courses/course/language-and-communication-research-ma
Collaborative awards involve working with a non-academic partner, already written into the specification. The projects associated with these awards are already partially defined in terms of data source, methods and broad theoretical orientation.
Please read the information above that outlines the nature of the project, to ensure you have the necessary interests, skills and academic background for carrying out the research.
Should you have any questions, please contact Dr Andreas Buerki ([email protected]) before applying.
