Collaborative and Joint Studentships

In addition to the pathway specific studentships, the Midlands Graduate School DTP will offer a number of Collaborative Studentships involving research or other activities with external public, private or third sector organisations. As part of the Midlands Graduate School, we also offer a number of Joint ESRC DTP Studentships. Students will be fully registered and hosted at one of the Midlands Graduate School institutions, but will have a second supervisor at another MGS institution.

Applications for the Joint and Collaborative projects outlined below have now closed. The projects listed below are for information only.

For entry in January 2018 the Midlands Graduate School is delighted to announce that they are offering an ESRC DTP Studentship aligned to the Industrial Strategy.
For information on the project available and how to apply please see here.

Collaborative projects will be advertised here on the DTP website and Joint projects will be advertised here on the DTP website.
