Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships
Funding competitions includes opportunities for PhD students to work with partner organisations, which are not higher education institutions, but are, for instance, museums, galleries, archives, heritage organisations, businesses, or charities.
Anyone interested in developing a Collaborative Doctoral Award partnership should contact the Director of Postgraduate Research, Dr Toby Osborne.
Student-led applications are submitted in January, as part of the standard PhD application process.
Supervisor-led Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships have, in the past, included partnerships with Tyneside Cinema, the Bowes Museum, and Blackfriars Restaurant.
