The Open University (OU) invites applications for full-time and part-time studentships in suite of pathways within The Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership.

Funding information

These studentships are funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) Grand Union Doctoral Partnership. The studentships are fully funded for up to four years full-time or six years part-time, covering tuition fees (at UK/EU level) and provides a stipend. Details can be found here.


You will have an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject. A master’s or equivalent experience is desirable. Eligibility criteria can be found here.

How to apply

If you would like to apply, follow the relevant link in the pathway descriptions below. Applications must be submitted by 17:00 on 20 January 2017.

There will be a two stage process; the first step is to apply to the OU. There will then be a first stage selection process prior to nomination for funding from the Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership in competition with other partners’ potential students. The Grand Union Doctoral Training Partnership is committed to funding the very best applicants; this will be decided at the second stage. If you are not selected for Grand Union support, yet your application is considered of an appropriate standard, it is possible that you might be nominated for other sources of funding.

Interviews for the first stage are likely to be in February 2017. Selection for the second stage is likely to be in late March 2017. You will be informed of the outcome soon after.
