ESRC funding for PhDs in Socio-Legal Studies/Criminology at the University of Strathclyde

Socio-Legal Studies (SLS) and Criminology research address core societal concerns such as state power, marginality and vulnerability, regulation and social order. At the University of Strathclyde, our research specialisms are extensive and interdisciplinary, including: law; criminology and criminal justice; penality and social control; gender, crime and justice; youth justice; and security and surveillance.

This pathway is part of the Scottish Doctoral Training Programme - http://www.socsciscotland.ac.uk/studentships - and offers ESRC-accredited training and PhD funding across the social sciences. Such funding is available on a competitive basis to well-qualified individuals wishing to study at the University of Strathclyde. The funding is for three years of a PhD or four years if an MSc is required, which can also be offered at Strathclyde. Fees and a full stipend at RCUK rates are available to students who have been resident in the UK for the previous three years and a fees-only award is available for residents of the wider European Union.
