South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership - student-led awards
We are delighted to announce the availability of fully-funded Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded PhD studentships as part of the the South, West & Wales Doctoral Training Partnership (SWW2).
The closing date for applications is 23:59 on Monday 16 January 2023.
The start date of this PhD studentship is 1 October 2023.
The SWW2 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDA) allow you to contribute to the development of a research project that has already been outlined by a team of established researchers within our consortium and partner organisations.
Each CDA includes provision for specific skills training to support the research to be undertaken, and also for employability enhancement opportunities within and beyond academia.
Your research proposal should explain the direction you propose to take the project, the expertise you bring to the project, and the particular career development opportunities you are most interested in capitalising upon.
Find out more about the CDA projects available at UWE:
- CDA3 Investigating the design of arts projects to support the wellbeing, resilience, and integration of refugees
- CDA8 The Role of Independent Cinema in the Age of On-Demand Culture
Should you have further questions about SWW at UWE in general, please contact Dr Bernhard Gross, UWE Bristol Academic Lead for SWW, at Bernhard.Gross@uwe.ac.uk.
Studentships will start on 1 October 2023 and consist of an annual tax-free stipend of approx £17,668 (this is the 22/23 rate as 23/24 rates are yet to be confirmed). In addition, full-time tuition fees will be covered for the length of the funding period. Please see the South, West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership Collaborative Doctoral Awards for further details.
The full award only covers the UK rate tuition fees, so UWE Bristol will cover the difference between the UK rate and the international fees for successful UWE Bristol international candidates.
