Applications for ESRC funding for MSc or MRes programmes linked to a PhD (1+3 or 2+2)
The 1+3 or 2+2 scheme provides funding for a one- or two-year research training master's (MSc or MRes) linked to a PhD programme and is designed for students who have not already completed an ESRC recognised programme of research training.
If you would like to be considered for this, you should submit an application for the relevant MSc or MRes programme, including a research proposal for the PhD element of the programme (but check whether the programme you are applying for has specific instructions about this). You must also indicate your wish to be considered for 1+3 or 2+2 funding in your personal statement.
There is no separate application for the studentship as such, but you must submit your application for the MSc or MRes programme by a specific deadline (see below).
