The Doctoral Centre for the Arts and Humanities offers AHRC (Arts and Humanities Research Council) funded studentships through two cross-university training centres: TECHNE and Design Star. These centres offer the highest quality research expertise, enable new models of collaborative research training and aim to develop the next generation of arts and humanities researchers.
The internal deadline for applications to be received by the University is Monday 8 January 2018.
TECHNE is a Doctoral Training Partnership funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC). The partnership will provide a unique graduate training experience by drawing together the best of traditional scholarship, history, theory and practice across seven higher education institutions in London and the South East (Royal Holloway, University of Brighton, Kingston University, Roehampton University, Royal College of Art, University of Surrey, University of the Arts London) with extensive collaboration from 13 world-leading partners such as the Natural History Museum, the V&A, the Science Museum, the BFI and the Barbican.
Awarding approximately 50 doctoral studentships each year across the broad spectrum of the arts and humanities, TECHNE’s vision is to produce a new generation of scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life.
