The school is funded jointly by the Economic and Social Research Council and the Scottish Funding Council.

Eligibility

To be eligible for a full award (stipend and fees), you must:

  • be ordinarily resident in the UK, meaning there are no restrictions on how long you can stay, and
  • have been 'ordinarily resident' in the UK for at least three years prior to the start of the studentship grant. This means you must have been normally residing in the UK (apart from temporary or occasional absences), and
  • not have been residing in the UK wholly or mainly for the purpose of full-time education. (This does not apply to UK nationals and EU nationals who were ordinarily resident in the EU immediately before the period of full-time education).
