About the SWDTP
The South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) is one of the largest doctoral training providers for social scientists in the UK. This strategic partnership is formed by the Universities of Plymouth, Bristol, Bath, Exeter, UWE, Bath Spa, Plymouth Marjon and Bournemouth and brings together social science academic leaders across our 18 disciplinary and interdisciplinary pathways, and representing one of the largest groupings of social scientists in the country.
The SWDTP has been accredited by the Economic and Social Sciences Research Council (ESRC) to offer a hub of world-class social sciences research, and has been allocated 36 ESRC studentships annually. It is part of a national network that is training a new generation of social scientists.
The SWDTP offers +3 training where students register for a three-year PhD programme, and 1+3 training which includes one year of research training through a masters programme followed by a three-year PhD programme.
It supports doctoral students by developing not only their research skills, but by offering a wide range of training, placements, activities and events as well. Working in a collaborative way across the five institutions to form part of your cohort.
