Cambridge ESRC DTP studentships are open to all students who meet the required academic conditions.

If you are passionate about understanding human behaviour and society, and committed to studying these at the highest level, you will be welcome at Cambridge. We are hoping to attract students of demonstrable academic potential, from all backgrounds, with an appetite for research and an aspiration towards a career in the humanities and social sciences.

We accept students wishing to study on either a part-time or full-time basis. We are also particularly keen to attract students who have inter- or cross-disciplinary interests and are hoping to do research with industry or third sector partners.

To receive ESRC studentship funding, students must have qualifications or experience equal to an honours degree at a first or upper second class level, or a masters from a UK academic research organisation.

Degree qualifications gained outside the UK, or a combination of qualifications and experience that is equivalent to a relevant UK degree, might be accepted in some cases.
