These pages explain the key regulations of your studentship and how to access the full range of benefits attached to it. The primary source of information we’ve used to create this document is your funder, the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC)’s Postgraduate Funding Guide:
The ESRC’s guide draws on, and is supplemented by, the UKRI Training Grant Guidance and UKRI Training Grant Terms and Conditions:
Facilitating the timely completion students’ awards/degrees is the responsibility of the LISS DTP team and has implications for the future funding our institutions can receive from the ESRC. We understand that complications and changes in circumstances can arise during your studies. Please get in touch with us as soon as you experience any problems or issues. We will do our best to assist, drawing on support/guidance from staff at the institution where you are a registered student to ensure that you receive information and support.
Most questions should be addressed to firstname.lastname@example.org, but those relating to payments (stipends, RTSG, OIV etc) and institutional regulations should be directed as given under ‘ LISS DTP Institutional Contacts’ below.

Our funded students
Each year, LISS DTP welcomes about 50 new funded students, supported by the ESRC and LISS DTP’s partner institutions. These students have their fees covered, receive a stipend and are also eligible for funding to cover additional development and training. LISS DTP is proud of its students, their energy and dedication to their research. It tries to support them in completing their research projects and developing as individuals.
