AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership

Arts and Humanities Research Council Doctoral Training Partnership (2014-2018)

The University of Oxford DTP offers skills training for students alongside academic doctoral supervision, and encourages research and public engagement with institutions outside the Higher Education sector. Our annual programme of conferences, events and workshops for DTP students supports their research and helps them complete their doctorates in a timely fashion, and provides them with a lively cohort of friends and colleagues.

Students funded via the DTP also have access to further support, including additional research funding and fully-funded internships of up to six months in any organization other than a university.

Director: Dr Benjamin Thompson
