Overview 

The Scottish Graduate School of Social Science is a unique collaboration between 16 Universities in Scotland. By working together with partner institutions, we are able to create word-class research training opportunities and to make them available to all doctoral students in the social sciences. We also provide member institutions with funding to support the development of training. 

SGSSS offers students access to research expertise across Scotland, in disciplines across social sciences, as well as in subjects where social scientists are collaborating with colleagues from other disciplines such as medicine and the natural/physical sciences.
