The Schools of Psychology and Healthcare and the Leeds Institute of Health Sciences are part of the White Rose Social Science Doctoral Training Centre (WR DTC), of which the University of Leeds is a member together with the universities of Sheffield and York. The DTC at Leeds spans across six faculties, encompassing all social sciences disciplines, and is connected to the Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI).
The DTC deals with the administration of ESRC scholarships as well as offering a comprehensive collaborative training programme which can be accessed by all social science PhD researchers at the three universities (regardless of their source of funding). The WR DTC offers training and opportunities at discipline level (Pathways) as well as more general, interdisciplinary opportunities, including advanced training on methodologies, an annual Spring Conference and a student-led seminar series. Besides training, the WR DTC aims to facilitate networking and collaboration across the social sciences and across the three institutions.
