Oxford’s ESRC Migration Studies pathway competition Studentships are suitable for Home or EU Students applying for a DPhil in a migration-related subject with a good first degree in a relevant social science subject.
The closing date for applications is the January 2019 deadline specified for the degree you are applying for, and there are two routes you can take:
*The Migration Studies Studentships are not intended for taught master’s degrees on their own. To apply you must be planning to undertake a doctorate. Please also note that successful upgrading to the doctoral programme is subject to approval by the relevant department’s DPhil Admissions Committee, and is based on your performance in the MSc.
The studentships cover the cost of fees for four years (on the 1+3 route) or three years (on the +3 route). Depending on your fee status, an annual stipend may also be payable.
The ESRC awarded Oxford the Migration Studies Studentships in recognition of our research strength in interdisciplinary migration studies, and the two taught masters are offered by Anthropology and International Development (the MSc in Migration Studies) and International Development (the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies) respectively. Students on the 1+3 pathway may progress from one of these masters to doctorates in International Development, Anthropology, Politics and International Relations, Geography, Law, Sociology, Economics or another appropriate department.
Details on the application process will be published online imminently.
