Abstract

This is a research report of a mixed methods study regarding the ESRC Doctoral research centres in a number of Universities in the UK. According to our findings, the DTCs seem not to have achieved their potential, at least not yet. It may be the case that doctoral students associated with DTCs, or in universities that have DTCs, have minimal sense of their form and function, and do not feel associated with them.The findings of this study suggest three main aspects of DTCs that might require reviewing, These relate to DTCs’ internal structures and processes, their role in the sector as a whole, and the social justice implications of concentrating doctoral funding within what are predominantly academically - and therefore socially - selective institutions particularly if their promise is to be realised.
