NWCDTP secures funding to train 225 new researchers

The North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership is one of 10 consortia to share more than £170 million in funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC).

The vision of the North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWCDTP) is to establish a centre of excellence in the arts and humanities. Researchers will be equipped with world-leading knowledge and skills appropriate to meeting the academic, professional and socio-economic demands of the twenty-first century.

Our students will be active partners in shaping their own training and development as researchers and future leaders. They will enjoy access to outstanding resources and training provision within a collegial environment supporting them to produce excellent research.  In turn they will contribute to a world class research environment and engage in mutually beneficial knowledge exchange relationships.

We aim to provide a meaningful cohort experience to all PhD students. Furthermore we will instill the confidence, skills and networks to succeed in interdisciplinary, international and non-HE settings.
