TweetThis! White Rose Studentships 2009-10

White Rose Studentships arise from the special relationship between the three White Rose Universities- University of Leeds, University of Sheffield and University of York. The studentships are collaborative in nature, and each studentship involves supervisors from two of the White Rose Universities (the principal supervisor at the lead institution and the co-supervisor at the partner institution). Students register at one of the three universities and have access to the full research facilities of the partner institution. Each studentship is part of a research network which spans all three universities.
