The ESRC Information Science Pathway is one of 24 accredited training
pathways within the Scottish ESRC Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) of the Scottish Graduate School of Social Science (SGSSS). This is part of a £20 million investment in the UK's largest DTC, which awards 65 studentships to pathways in 10 Scottish universities each year.
The Information Science Pathway is a collaborative activity that involves the following universities:
The four partners collaborate to deliver advanced training events for PhD students in Information Science, and an annual doctoral colloquium entitled iDocQ.
The partners also contribute to the SGSSS summer school
A number of funded PhD places are awarded to the pathway by the ESRC. These places are usually advertised annually in December for a start date the following September.
