Important news about PhD studentship opportunities at the IoE

The Institute of Education is inviting applicants for PhD studentships to work on topics within its two research groups, Language and Literacy in Education  and Improving Equity and Inclusion through Education. Both groups sit within the Education, Language and Learning Research division. We are looking for students interested in pursuing PhD projects along these broad themes.

There are opportunities for several PhD studentships.

The University of Reading is part of the ESRC funded South East Network for Social Sciences (SeNSS) Doctoral Training Partnership, which will be awarding up to 35 studentships across the network for the 2017/18 academic year.  These studentships are open to UK and EU residents on a fees plus yearly stipend basis (for UK residents) or a fees only basis (for EU residents). SeNSS is a consortium of 10 leading UK universities, all engaged in cutting-edge social science research and training.

The University of Reading is also currently offering the University International Research Studentships.  There are seven studentships on offer across the university, one of which covers international fees plus stipend and a further six to cover fees only.

This year, the University of Reading is also offering 10 Anniversary PhD Scholarships that will cover fees and a yearly stipend for UK and EU residents. International students are again welcome to apply, but must cover the difference between UK/EU and international fees.

The University is also currently offering Regional PhD bursaries, to students living in the Reading area, which cover full UK/EU fees and are available for full or part-time study.

Interested applicants should contact Ioe-pgr@reading.ac.uk to signal their intent to apply, and to gain further information regarding the application procedure and specific deadline for each award (which will all generally be in January/February 2017.
