AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership 2 – Studentship competition 2018 (entry September 2019)

The South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership is to receive funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to deliver the next version of the Doctoral Training Partnership Programme.

The South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership was originally established in 2014 and has adapted and expanded to form a strategic regional partnership which will offer greater opportunities for staff and students alike.

The South, West and Wales DTP 2 (SWW2) consortium is a collaboration between the universities of Aberystwyth, Bath Spa, Bristol, Cardiff, Cranfield, Exeter, Reading, Southampton and UWE, and the Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum of Wales. The consortium will offer 200 studentships across 5 cohorts of students starting September 2019.

SWW2 will provide postgraduate studentships, including Collaborative Doctoral Awards and training and development opportunities, from September 2019 across the full range of the AHRC’s disciplines, with a strong emphasis on collaboration between the members of the consortium and 23 cultural, arts, heritage and industry partners including Aardman Animations, Arts Council South West, Cornwall Museum Partnerships and Historic England.

SWW2 is offering c. 30 studentships for entry in September 2019.
