Doctoral training with ACCE2 at the University of Liverpool
APPLICATIONS FOR 2021 ENTRY ARE NOW OPEN. Closing date for applications is 15th January 2021
Shortlisted applicants will be interviewed for only one project from across the ACCE partnership. However, as some projects have more applicants than others, we encourage applicants to consider applying for more than one project within ACCE in order to maximise their chances of being interviewed.
The studentships are open to UK and international/ EU applicants.
Please note that the UKRI funding only covers UK fees (£4407 at the 2020/2021 rate). International and EU fee rate candidates would need to cover the remaining amount of tuition fees by securing additional funding.
Within equal opportunities principles and regulations, applications will be assessed in the light of a candidate’s ability to meet the required criteria. Students will be evaluated by application and by interview performance.
