Submitting student details
For all new studentships, where funding is provided on a training grant or a research grant, a nomination form is no longer required in advance of the student starting. Student details should be submitted within a month of starting through the Je-S Studentship Details Portal (SDP). Details of the project and any CASE partner should be submitted along with the student details, through the SDP.
Data should be submitted via the Add New Document option - select NERC, then Studentship Details, then one of five categories: NERC MTG Scheme, NERC Open CASE Studentship, NERC Project Studentship, NERC Research Studentship (Algorithm), NERC Research Studentship (Directed).NERC quick guide to selecting and changing a Studentship Scheme in Je-S (398KB)

Data should be updated as required during the course of the studentship, in particular changes to the students email address, so NERC can contact them. Updates should be made where a student terminates or there is a change of supervisor or involvement of a new CASE/project partner. Where changes are made to the expected submission date, beyond the standard four years from the start date (due to abeyance, maternity, part-time working, etc) supervisors should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to explain the requirement for the extension (until this detail can be recorded on the Je-S SDP screens).
Submission of PhD and masters submission data
NERC expects a PhD research student to submit a thesis no later than four years after the start of the studentship, and a masters student to submit no later than 18 months after the start of the studentship, except where they have had an abeyance period (eg for maternity or illness) or have changed to part-time working, when the expected submission date can be extended accordingly.
NERC collects submission data from universities on an annual basis. Submission data for all NERC-funded students will now be collected via the Je-S PhD/Masters Submissions Survey.
Any questions on submitting data through either the Je-S SDP or the Je-S submission data survey should be addressed to the Je-S helpdesk.
