The Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP will offer at least 77 doctoral studentships each year, across the full range of arts and humanities subject areas. We offer two routes for doctoral studentship funding.
|Standard route competition||This route asks you to design and propose a doctoral research project to be supervised by faculty members at one of the consortium universities.|
|Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs)||CDA projects are jointly developed by OOC DTP faculty members and a partner organisation. Applicants are invited to define their approach to the outline project in discussion with the supervisors.|
What the OOC DTP offers
For candidates who meet the AHRC eligibility requirements, a full award through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP offers:
- Payment of university tuition fees throughout the funded period;
- A maintenance grant at the UKRI national minimum doctoral stipend rate;
- The opportunity to apply to the DTP for an extension to studentship funding on the basis of individual training and reseach needs or to support a professional placement with an external organisation.
Funding is adjusted on a pro-rata basis for part-time students and where the award is for a period of less than 12 months in any year.
We also offer students training and researcher development opportunities and access to the resources and training offered by our consortium universities.
