ESRC ‘1+3’ / ‘+3’ Studentships

The Centre for Criminology at the University of Oxford is delighted to be able to offer two ESRC studentships to commence in October 2013. One will be a +3 studentship; the other either a 1+3 or a +3 studentship.

The 1+3 studentship covers the cost of fees for four years together with a stipend for each year (currently £13,590 per annum). It enables the successful applicant to study for the MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice or the MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice (Research Methods) in the first year, followed by three years of doctoral research leading to the award of a DPhil. A student who completes the MSc Criminology and Criminal Justice degree in year one, must take additional research methods courses in year two to ensure that they meet the ESRC’s graduate training requirements.

+3 studentships cover the cost of fees and provide a stipend for three years of doctoral study. They are open to students with a good first degree and a Masters degree in any relevant social science. Students with a masters degree the curriculum of which does not meet the ESRC’s graduate training requirements will be required to take additional methods training during the first year of their doctoral study.

ESRC 1+3 and +3 Studentships are only available to UK (fees plus stipend) and EU (fees only) students.

Applications are invited for these studentships with a closing date of Friday 18th January 2013.  Interviews will be held on Friday 8th February 2013.
