Midlands4Cities Arts and Humanities Doctoral Studentships at Birmingham City University

M4C is expanding on the previous research and training capacity of the Midlands3Cities DTP by adding an additional two partners to its consortium – Coventry University and the University of Warwick.

The Midlands4Cities DTP will include at least 40 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) co-designed with non-university partners. The partnership will give students access across all eight institutions to a customised programme of research and employability training, which will enable students to gain vital arts and humanities skills.

The consortium brings together academic expertise from – Birmingham City University, the University of Birmingham, the University of Warwick, Coventry University, De Montfort University, the University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University and the University of Nottingham. All eight of the universities in the DTP have also committed to match the AHRC funding.

If you are thinking of doctoral study and want to be part of a thriving community of postgraduate research students then applications open 8 October 2018 for 2019 entry.

Full details of the M4C offer, our partners, a supervisor search tool and the online application form and guidance notes will be on a new M4C website that will be available soon.

All of our research centres have extensive links with commercial partners, policy-makers and arts organisations, both here in the UK and overseas, which  supplement the institutional support Birmingham City University provides. Midlands3Cities students are able to draw on the expertise of supervisors at Birmingham City University and partner universities.

The studentships cover the full cost of fees for the doctoral programme, a full-time student stipend for living expenses, and funding for specific expenses associated with the doctoral research and professional development of successful applicants.
