 AHRC-funded Technē Studentships

Technē is a Doctoral Training Partnership funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to create a new model for collaborative research skills training for research students across nine 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, Loughborough London, Westminster). . Technē’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life. Fully-funded studentships (stipend and fee waiver) will be awarded by technē to the best students put forward by its member universities. Successful applicants will benefit from a rich and diverse training programme with a focus on interdisciplinarity and developing career potential both in and beyond higher education; and will be able to draw on supervisory expertise from across the partnership. The technē training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by 13 partner organisations, including the Barbican, Natural History Museum, Museum of London, BFI and the Science Museum.
