You will receive subject-specific and advanced training, whilst undertaking your research in an innovative, ground-breaking and empowering research environment, amongst our thriving postgraduate community.

Applications for SeNSS Studentships are open now. The deadline is 12pm on Monday 20 January 2020.
You can apply for a studentship in one of the following Pathways:
Studentships are available as +3 (PhD) or 4- year (Masters and PhD) awards, and on a full-time or part-time basis. Choose which course you want to study, and apply for a place on that course by 12pm on 20 January 2020.
We strongly encourage you to contact the School or Department you wish to apply to at the earliest opportunity in order to discuss your research proposal and potential supervision arrangements. This is particularly important in order to give supervisors enough time to assist in the development of your application to ensure the best chance of success.
Please note that you will need to discuss your application with the department to which you are applying for a place of study. The department will provide you with an access code for you to commence the application process.
The deadline to be offered a place on your course at Essex is on 20 January 2020 and the deadline for submission of your online applications for a SeNSS Studentship is 12pm 20 January 2020.
After the submission deadline, applications pass through an internal University selection process, before a decision is made whether to nominate particular applications to the SeNSS pathway (disciplinary) selection panels. Applications put forward to these panels are considered alongside applications from other SeNSS partner institutions.
The final selection phase, conducted by the SeNSS Management Board, will be held at the beginning of April each year, and you will be notified by mid-April whether you have been awarded a SeNSS student-led studentship.
