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 postgraduate researchers will be active partners in shaping their training and development as researchers and future leaders. They will enjoy access to outstanding resources and training provisions within a collegial environment, supporting them to produce excellent research. In addition, 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 postgraduate researchers. Furthermore, we will instil the confidence, skills and networks to succeed in interdisciplinary, international and non-HE settings.
