    Hi,

    I could do with some advice about a potential problem with the new (well, newish) ELQ funding situation.

    I'm nearing the end of my undergrad degree now, so I'm starting to research postgrad possibilities because I need to be organised on the funding front. I had planned to do a taught Masters (self-funded) to gain more depth of subject knowledge (I'm looking at the IoE's Sociology of Education MA) before (hopefully) applying for funding to go on to a PhD. Under the ESRC 1+3 scheme this would involve doing a Research Methods Masters.

    In light of the ELQ funding rules, would the first Masters present a problem with getting ESRC funding for the Research Methods Masters?

    Another option would be to apply straight off for a 1+3 place, but I feel I need to spend more time developing my subject knowledge before I'm ready to do that. I could do this by myself, but I think a taught Masters programme would be much more effective.

    Any advice would be much appreciated
