Doctoral Training Partnerships

We are partners in several Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) across the country. These awards are made to consortiums of universities for them to disburse as PhD studentship funding, with the universities themselves providing match funding at varying levels. These consortia work with a range of industry partners in the arts and humanities, such as Historic England, to provide opportunities for collaborative research and student development.

Historic England and DTPs

We are currently partners with the following DTPs

AHRC funded

NERC funded

An increasing number of students involved in these partnerships are now turning to research areas that address our priorities and we are pleased to be able to offer guidance on their selection of topic.

Our support for research through a DTP can include

  • Basic advice or access to sites or data
  • Offering work placements with specialist teams
  • Full co-supervision of postgraduate PhDs

The level of support we provide will vary from research project to research project. It will be assessed against our ability to offer in-house expertise and the resource availability – as well as the priority of the research being undertaken.


Research priorities for DTPs

We are sharing our research priorities with our academic partners through our web site. Our Research Strategy enables prospective researchers to see the research imperatives in our Corporate Action Plan and other supporting statements, such as our Science Strategy.

Those wanting further information on our research priorities and on our collaborative work with universities and the research councils should contact the Postgraduate Research & Skills Officer using the details below.
