Fully-funded PhD Studentships for 2019

Up to 30 fully-funded PhD Studentships for entry in September 2019 with South, West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership

The AHRC-funded South, West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP2) is a collaboration of Bath Spa University, eight leading universities and the Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum of Wales, and 23 cultural, arts, heritage and industry partners including Aardman Animations, Arts Council South West, Cornwall Museum Partnerships and Historic England.

The SWW DTP2 offers joint supervision arrangements between its 10 consortium members (9 university partners and the Amgueddfa Cymru-National Museum of Wales). Its students are provided with unparalleled access across institutional boundaries to the most relevant and cutting-edge expertise through these collaborative supervisory teams, ensuring an exceptional breadth and depth of coverage for your project.

The SWW DTP2 is designed to lead a new generation of researchers into productive careers whether in academia or professional practice. It provides flexible, student-centred training that nurtures disciplinary expertise in conjunction with interdisciplinary perspectives, enriched by the world-class expertise and state-of-the-art resources offered through the partnership.

The period of a studentship is between a minimum of three years and a maximum of four years. Students can apply to extend their studentship beyond the minimum should they wish to undertake a placement opportunity with an external organisation or undertake significant training that is essential to their project.

Find out more information about the programme, its partners, the training offering, the application process, and eligibility by visiting the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership website.
