The studentship begins in September 2015 and covers living costs of about £16.000 per year for 3 years (or part time equivalent for five years). It also covers full tuition fees for British and European students (£4,052 per year). International students are unfortunately required to pay the difference in tuition fees through their own resources (the total fee for international students is £12.000 per year from which £4,052 will be covered).
We are particularly interested in students who: •have a solid background in educational science or related social-scientific disciplines •have experience in working with “ voiceless” urban young populations in school or after-school/ community contexts (and eventually speaks their language(s) and/or belongs to/ comes from such populations) •are experienced in qualitative research methods and data interpretation •are skilled in new media technologies (with basic programming, design and database management skills) or at least eager to develop such skills
Last but not least: We are happy to undertake supervision of PhD students who can secure funding from other resources on related topics such as: global & intercultural education; digital media in teaching & learning; schooling, diversity & marginalization.
