ESRC Doctoral Centre

Sussex has hosted one of only 21 funded Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs) in the UK. This will continue within the new South East Network for Social Science (SeNSS) Doctoral Training Partnership.

The University of Sussex has been recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) for providing excellent research training for the next generation of social scientists.

We previously hosted one of only 21 ESRC-funded Doctoral Training Centres (DTCs) in the UK, the last cohort of students being recruited in 2016.

ESRC funding continues at Sussex as part of the SeNSS Doctoral Training Partnership.

Sussex ESRC Doctoral Centre supports research students in the social sciences throughout their research degrees.

The following pages provide advice and information on the opportunities open to you as an ESRC-funded researcher at Sussex.
