PhD Placements

We support doctoral researchers to collaborate with non-University partners to further the reach and impact of academic research.


Projects are financially supported through an extension to the scholarship for a duration equivalent to the length of the project. All AHRC-funded postgraduate researchers (including fees-only funded PGRs) who will be in their three-year funded period at the time of the proposed placement are eligible to apply. Placements must start before the end of the awarded period. 
PhD researchers can either respond to Partner-Led opportunities or calls from other National and International placement schemes, when these are advertised throughout the year, or design their own placement project through the Researcher-led strand. 
For full details on how to apply and with information on eligibility, funding and reporting requirements, please read the Guidance Document.
