  *technē AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership Studentships**at the
  University of Westminster*

technē is now welcoming applications for fully-funded studentships across the arts and humanities beginning in autumn 2021.

The Communication and Media Institute (CAMRI) is a world leading centre in the study of media and communication, renowned for its critical and international research which has consistently been ranked highly according to the Research Excellence Framework and the QS World University rankings. In REF 2014 52% of our work was ranked ‘world leading’ and 87% ‘internationally excellent’. We are part of the AHRC-funded technē Doctoral Training Partnership.

For more information on technē and the kinds of projects it funds, please go to thetechne 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.

    *About the studentships*

*3.5 years full-time (7 years part-time) *
*£17,285 per annum stipend full-time (£8,643 per annum part-time)* *

*20/21 UKRI stipend rates

    *What does it includ**e?*

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).**

**21/22 home fee rate is £5,520 and the international fee rate is £14,110. Therefore, international students will be expected to pay the difference between these fee rates themselves - £8,590.

    *Entry requirements*

Students must comply with the AHRC eligibility criteria and other terms and conditions available on theAHRC’s webpage <>.

Entry criteria are normally at least a 2:1 in a relevant first degree and a masters degree. Applications should include a research proposal and all necessary additional documents.
