AHRC PhD Studentships
Cardiff University is part of the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW DTP) which awards AHRC doctoral studentships. The partnership is a collaboration of eight leading research universities and partners from the creative economy, working together to develop the arts and humanities researchers for the future. The SWW DTP offer doctoral studentships annually, with applications usually closing at the end of January (for an October start). More information on the studentships can be found on the SWW DTP’s website.
Applicants interested in applying for AHRC funding are advised to contact our Director of Postgraduate Research for informal discussions ahead of submitting an application:
