AHRC Funded Studentships in College of Business, Arts & Social Sciences via the TECHNE2 Doctoral Training Partnership.

Brunel University London is part of a consortium of universities in London and the southeast that form a national Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) focusing on the arts and humanities disciplines.

TECHNE is one of ten Doctoral Training Partnerships receiving funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) as part of their commitment to supporting postgraduate-level research into the arts and humanities disciplines.  


Originally established in 2014, TECHNE has successfully collaborated with partner institutions and external organisations across London and the south east to deliver industry-relevant research across a range of arts and humanities disciplines. The latest round of funding enables the consortium to widen its remit and continue this work.

As part of the DTP consortium, Brunel University London will support studentships for high-achieving arts and humanities scholars which will commence in October 2021. The studentships will be offered through the College of Business, Arts and Social Sciences’ interdisciplinary research centres – Entrepreneurship and Sustainability and Global Lives.  DTP students will become members of the College’s vibrant research community where they will benefit from Brunel’s diverse specialist expertise.

We are pleased to invite applications for studentships in the following subject areas:

  • History
  • Cultures and Heritage
  • Visual Arts
  • Performing and Creative Arts
  • Languages and Literature
