Techne AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Studentships at the University of Westminster

The University of Westminster is one of the nine universities that make up the AHRC-funded technē Doctoral Training Partnership.

Technē supports outstanding students pursuing the craft of research through innovative, inter-disciplinary and creative approaches across a range of the arts and humanities. For more information on technē andthe kinds of projects it funds, visit the Techne website

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.

Technē is now welcoming applications for fully-funded studentships across the arts and humanities beginning in autumn 2019.

At Westminster we are offering technē studentships in the following areas:

- Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM): The Centre was judged by REF 2014 as the UK’s leading research centre working across art and design, with a rating of 95% of our research as world leading or internationally excellent.

- Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI): A world-leading centre of media and communication research that conducts research and research education focused on the role of media, culture and communication(s) in society and the critical study of media and power.

- English Literature, English Language and Visual Culture (part of School of Humanities) The research publications of the School’s staff in English Language, Literature and Linguistics were ranked by REF 2014 as being in the top 20 of departments in the UK and we also have internationally excellent research in Visual Culture.

Studentships include maintenance and fees for three years for a full time student, or six years for a part-time student.

Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of the studentship. EU students are eligible for a full award if they have been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the three-year period preceding the start of the studentship (including for full time education). Residential eligibility is based on a physical presence in the UK. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU.

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) remaining at the time they start their scholarship.

If you are interested in applying for a place at the University of Westminster supported by a technē studentship, we strongly recommendyou first contact a member of the academic staff in the relevant area and talk to them about your proposal.
