As an ESRC funded WGSSS student, you have access to many additional opportunities.

  • Through our internship opportunities we will support you with an extension to your studentship¬†to work with a¬†non-academic¬†organisation, gaining valuable experience and additional skills.
  • We provide funding towards difficult language training where this is appropriate to your research.
  • We have funding available to contribute to overseas fieldwork expenses where this is an integral part of your PhD.
  • You can apply for funding to support¬†an overseas institutional visit.
  • If you have a disability which means that you incur additional expenditure in connection with your studies, you may be eligible for our disabled student’s allowance.
  • We also periodically call for applications for our small grants for collaborative opportunities with non-academic organisations, and for¬†inter and cross-disciplinary activities.
