We’re part of the Scottish Graduate School for Social Sciences (ESRC funded) – the UK's largest facilitator of funding, training and support for doctoral students in social sciences.
We’re also members of the Scottish Graduate School for Arts and Humanities (AHRC Funded), and actively recruit postgraduate research students via their competitions. Stirling is also part of other UK Research Council funded Doctoral Training Partnerships across a range of subjects including Eastbio (Biosciences in Scotland), Iapetus and SUPER (both Natural Environment Research funded for environmental research).
The University also partners with the Commonwealth Scholarships Commission whose PhD Scholarship scheme is led by international development objectives and support.
In addition, our Institute for Advanced Studies (IAS) Studentships offer both UK and international students the opportunity to undertake a PhD in inter-disciplinary doctoral projects.
