AHRC South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership

The AHRC South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW2) is a consortium comprising Cardiff University, Aberystwyth University, Amgueddfa Cymru – National Museum Wales, Bath Spa University, University of Bristol, Cranfield University, University of Exeter, University of Reading, University of Southampton, and the University of the West of England.

Arts & Humanities Research Council

Building on the strengths and partnerships developed under SWW1, SWW2 offers postgraduate studentships designed to train and prepare a new generation of professional researchers in the arts and humanities for a wide range of careers, including in academia and the cultural and industry sectors.

Collaboration between member universities and partner organisations is central to the DTP’s ethos, and you will be supported by a co-supervisory team based in Cardiff University and another consortium institution. You will also benefit from access to the Partnership’s collective resources and training opportunities.
