The University of Brighton is one of the partners in the South Coast DTP funded by the Economic and Social Research Council. The South Coast DTP is a beacon of excellence, innovation and imagination in postgraduate training for the next generation of social scientists.
The South Coast DTP will be awarding studentships to social scientists carrying out PhD studies, or Masters + PhD studies at its three partner institutions. The studentships will be for pre-approved projects and 'open call' projects for which applicants devise their own project proposal.
The University of Brighton are advertising a number of pre-approved SCDTP projects to which applicants can apply. Please follow the project links below to find further information and details of the supervisors of these projects.
We also encourage general 'open call' applications to SCDTP from students wishing to submit their own project ideas for consideration in the areas of business and management, criminology, social policy, social work and secondary analysis of ESRC data sets. For advice on finding a supervisor for a general 'open call' application, see the section below or email DoctoralCollege@brighton.ac.uk if you would like to be put in touch with a potential supervisor.
Through an exciting collaboration between the Universities of Brighton, Southampton and Portsmouth, the South Coast DTP aims to deliver the latest developments in training in research methods and skills to produce highly qualified and rounded social scientists, equipped to meet contemporary economic and social challenges.
The next intake of funded students will be in the 2018–19 academic year.
