Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership

The Cambridge AHRC DTP brings together outstanding UK and EU postgraduate students in a programme that meets and challenges the highest international standards with respect to its intellectual and academic excellence.

Cambridge AHRC DTP (entry cohorts: 2014-2018)

The University of Cambridge has been home to one of 11 UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP). Funding from the AHRC alongside matched funding from the University means that there were about 60 doctoral scholarships available each year to students from the UK and EU.  Five cohorts of students have been recruited, with the final cohort commencing their studies in 2018/19. Studentships were available in all AHRC-designated arts and humanities subject areas offered across the University.

Please note that the Cambridge AHRC DTP is no longer accepting application from prospective students.


Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP (entry cohorts: 2019-2023)

The DTP is underpinned by world-class research and training environments, supported by strategic partnerships with the BBC World Service, the National Trust and British Telecom.
