The School of Geography, Politics and Sociology is a partner of the IAPETUS North East and Scotland multi-disciplinary Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP).

This is funded and accredited by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC).

IAPETUS postgraduate studentships are tenable for between three and four years, depending on the doctoral research project the student is studying. Each of our studentship awards include 3.5 years of fees (Home/EU), an anticipated annual living allowance (£19,162) and a Research Training Support Grant (for travel, consumables, as required).

Research projects

A list of available studentship research projects will be published here in Autumn 2024.
