Doctoral Training PartnershipMidlands3Cities Arts and Humanities Doctoral Studentships at Birmingham City University

Recruitment to the Midlands3Cities Arts and Humanities Doctoral Studentships at Birmingham City University has now ended. It has been replaced by Midlands4Cities.

Birmingham City University is one of six universities that has been part of Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP). This DTP was one of 11 in the UK funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Over five years this partnership has offered over 400 PhD studentships to excellent research students in the arts and humanities.

The DTP, a collaboration between the universities of Birmingham City, Birmingham, De Montfort, Leicester, Nottingham and Nottingham Trent, providing research candidates with cross-institutional mentoring, expert supervision, subject-specific and generic training, and professional support in preparing for a career.

Since 2014, at Birmingham City University we have had Midland3Cities students in the Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research, and in the Schools of Art, English and Law.
