PhD funding – webinar for prospective applicants 5th October

Dear Student,

Do you think you might be interested in applying for a PhD in the coming year or two? As part of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion strategy, the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS) is keen to ensure that all those with potential to undertake a PhD in the social sciences are aware of what a PhD is and how funding might be obtained. As such we are running a webinar on 5th October from 14:00 to 15:00 which you can register for via this link: Starting your Journey Towards a PhD: First Steps in the Application Process

This webinar will give you a chance to hear about some of the processes involved as well as to hear from some of our inspiring, current PhD students who have been on a journey from originally thinking that a PhD was not for them, to now thriving early career researchers.

If you are unable to come along on the day then you might want to view some short videos here to find out more about the basics of PhD funding and the processes of applying.

If you have any queries, please contact SGSSS at
