CREAM is now accepting applications for the AHRC-funded technē Doctoral Training Partnership, beginning in Autumn 2024.  

technē supports outstanding students pursuing the ‘craft’ of research through innovative, interdisciplinary and creative approaches across a range of the arts and humanities. The University of Westminster is one of the nine universities that make up the technē consortium. 

As well as financial support, technē offers a developmental framework for doctoral researchers across the collaborating institutions, with research training, supportive community networks, professional and public engagement opportunities and a space for both independent and collaborative scholarship. 

The studentships include maintenance and fees for 3.5 years for a full-time student; or 7 years for a part-time student at 50% of the full-time studentship level each year (pro-rata if you have already started your PhD). Studentships are open to students who have already started their doctoral study but they must have at least 50% of the funded period of an AHRC award (usually 18 months full time) remaining at the time they start their scholarship. 

International students are eligible to apply for studentships but will be expected to pay the difference between the home and international fee rate themselves (as the studentship will only cover fees at the home rate, plus the stipend).  

The deadline for applications is 5pm (GMT) on Friday 1 December 2023. Interviews will be held week commencing 15 January 2024.
