Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Social Sciences: Economics, University of East Anglia
Social Sciences Graduate School Research PhD Studentships are offered to prospective candidates from the academic year 2016/17.
The Studentships will be available under the Scheme to applicants who, in their research proposal, can clearly demonstrate academic excellence in areas relevant to the strategic interests of the School of Economics.
Please see our Economics Research Areas and Academic Profiles for more details, and for the research interests of individual members of staff. The results of the Research Excellence Framework (2014) rank the School of Economics 8th among Economics departments for research outputs (Times Higher Education). 91.8% of the School’s research output is scored as either “world-leading” or “internationally excellent”, compared with an average score of 77% across all other Economics departments.
The Studentships cover tuition fees (UK/EU rates), a tax-free maintenance grant (currently £14,057 per year), and a research training support grant. International students are welcome to apply but must be able to pay the difference between UK/EU fees and international fees.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified graduates. Candidates should hold, or expect to hold, a minimum of at least a 2.1 degree and Research Masters degree or equivalent. Candidates may be asked to participate in an interview, which could take place via telephone or Skype as part of the selection process. EU and International applicants may be required to provide evidence of competence in the English Language.
To be considered for this award, you should make an application for admission to an MPhil/PhD in the normal manner, but you should indicate the intention to be considered for an open studentship under the Postgraduate Studentships Scheme. Please look at our website for supervision and research interests in the School of Economics: Economics: Research Degrees (PhD/MPhil) - University of East Anglia (UEA). Feel free to contact the Postgraduate Admissions Officer, Dr Corrado Di Maria, if you wish to find out more about supervision possibilities.
