Welcome to the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership. We provide graduate students with unique and exciting opportunities to pursue research, to engage in training, and to learn from each other as part of a large multi-disciplinary group. By providing an environment for creative collaboration and innovation we encourage original, ambitious doctoral research. The wealth of experience and expertise in delivering doctoral training that already exists in each of these universities is enhanced by our partners, the BBC World Service, the National Trust and BT.

An Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP studentship helps equip our students with the necessary research expertise and professional skills for a wide range of careers in academia and beyond. If you are interested in being a part of this exciting opportunity, and would like to find out more about the consortium and our partners, please explore the website further. I hope that the information you find here will encourage you to apply to join us and that we can help you to realise your academic ambitions.
