AHRC Studentships (PhD and masters) available at the University of Roehampton through the TECHNE Doctoral Training Partnership

TECHNE is an AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, a Consortium of 7 higher education institutions, including the University of Roehampton, based in London and the South-East of the UK. Over 5 years (2014-2019), TECHNE will award around 176 PhD studentships and 25 masters studentships at one of its partner institutions. The other partners are: Royal Holloway University of London (co-ordinator), Brighton University, Kingston University, Royal College of Art, University of Surrey, University of the Arts London. The Consortium is named TECHNE in reference to the Greek term for craft – it will create a new model for collaborative research skills training for PhD students. TECHNE’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life. Students will benefit from a diversity of training opportunities and be able to draw on supervisory expertise from across the Consortium.

As a member of the TECHNE AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, University of Roehampton applicants for PhD study (and come current PhD students)* are eligible to apply for Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) studentships (stipend and fee waiver) to start 1 October 2014. TECHNE offers a rich and diverse training programme for doctoral students with a focus on interdisciplinarity and developing career potential both in and beyond higher education. Studentships are awarded by TECHNE to the best students put forward by its member universities. The TECHNE training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by TECHNE’s 13 partner organisations (including the Barbican, Natural History Museum, Museum of London, BFI and ScienceMuseum) in the cultural sector. Please visit to find out more about the aims and opportunities of TECHNE.

It is not possible to apply directly to TECHNE for a studentship; applications must be made via the University of Roehampton for study at the university.  Your TECHNE application will therefore go through a two-stage process, being considered firstly by the University of Roehampton and, if selected, secondly by a panel of subject specialists from TECHNE members.

How to apply

Prospective or current doctoral students who are interested in applying for a studentship should proceed as follows:

Contact the Research Degrees Convener in the relevant department (please click here for a list of Research Degrees Conveners and their contact details) to talk informally about your research proposal and what supervision might be available. Contact Amy Brown in the Graduate School (, tel. 020 8392 3619) for general queries. Please note, AHRC studentships are only available for UK and EU applicants, and EU applicants who have not been in residence in the UK for a minimum of 3 years, will only be eligible for a fees-only studentship (see AHRC Funding Guide, Appendix A for details).
