Join a thriving postgraduate research community
Swansea, Cardiff, Aberystwyth and Bangor Universities are partners in the all-Wales Doctoral Training Centre (DTC). Led by Cardiff University, the DTC trains top-level social scientists on a range of issues affecting society today.
The establishment of a Doctoral Training Centre funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) allows 33 new postgraduate studentships to be offered every year in Wales for the next five years.
The Swansea arm of the DTC is hosted by the Research Institute for Applied Social Sciences (RIASS).
