ESRC NW Social Science DTP

ESRC NW Social Science DTP

The North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP) brings together social science researchers from three major institutions: the Universities of Keele, Lancaster, Liverpool and Manchester.

Cross-institutional doctoral supervision is now facilitated through the DTP and the two relevant pathways (accounting & finance and business & management) are now co-operating on opening up specialist training and other events to PGR students across the DTP.  More details can be found here.

If you wish to study modules at Lancaster or Liverpool, please see the Guidance for Module Exchange 2015-16 and apply by returning this Module Exchange Application Form to your Doctoral Programmes Administrator.

As the pathways continue to develop more joint activity, you will be kept informed of opportunities to participate in events and meet researchers from other institutions.
