    AHRC-funded technē Studentships

/Technē/ <> is a Doctoral Training Partnership funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), aiming 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; Brunel University; University of Brighton; Kingston University; Loughborough University, London; Roehampton University; University of Surrey; University of the Arts London; and University of Westminster). /Technē/’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life.
