Funded Research Studentships – Socio-legal Studies

The Universities of Bristol, Exeter and Bath have created the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC) which draws together the established research excellence of more than 770 academic and research staff at the three institutions. The SWDTC was awarded Doctoral Training Centre status by the ESRC in January 2011, enabling us to offer a number of funded studentship opportunities (available for European Union citizens only). Further information on the studentships can be found at

Further information about socio-legal studies at Bristol is available at

Students applying for ESRC funded scholarships are encouraged to speak to their chosen school prior to application in order to discuss their research ideas with a suitable supervisor. Students are also encouraged to look at ways of incorporating collaboration with external partners into their research proposal. Collaboration does not always have to be a financial arrangement and could take the form of a placement, voluntary work, data sharing or other payment in kind opportunities.

Details of the application process are available on the School of Law website at

Please note: the closing date for applications for the studentships is 13 February 2014.
