The Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) announced this month that Newcastle University, Durham University and Queen’s University Belfast are to receive a total of £11.2 million to fund a new programme of postgraduate research training under the new Northern Bridge Doctoral Training Partnership (NBDTP).
The Partnership will bring together the research strengths of the three universities, offering postgraduate research students opportunities to work with partner organizations and research leaders across a wide range of Arts and Humanities subjects and to benefit from new specialist training and resources. The award will provide fully funded studentships across the three institutions over the next five years. This represents over six per cent of the total number of AHRC studentships awarded nationally for this period.
To find out more about NBDTP and how the new Partnership will benefit doctoral research at ICCHS current PhD research students are invited to attend a special Student Forum event on Monday 9 December, 2-4pm in the Doctoral Training Room (Fifth Floor, Daysh Building, Newcastle University). Please email firstname.lastname@example.org by Friday 29 November if you would like to attend.
