Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership


Practical information for award holders

Please see the Cambridge Students webpages, where there is a section for current holders of AHRC studentships at the University, containing practical information about your award .

AHRC Students mailing list

This mailing list is for AHRC-funded PhD students to help the AHRC share any opportunities with the students directly.  This is another route to enable you to receive any news and information that might be of interest and the AHRC encourages award holders to inform them of activities which are open to other students. You are not able to post items directly to this mailing list, though you are welcome to send information to the AHRC about events or activities that you think might be of interest to other AHRC-funded students. 

Please contact the AHRC with the details of the opportunity by sending an email to:  The AHRC then post to the forum. 

You can sign up to the mailing list by going to the JISC site and choosing the ‘subscribe’ option on this list:

Early Submission and Continuation of Funding

If a student submits within the three years of their funding, they are entitled to apply for their funding to continue until the end of the quarter within which the thesis is submitted. To apply for continuation of funding until the end of the quarter, the student should send a case to the DTP Director ( two months prior to intended submission outlining how the project of work for the remainder of the quarter is directly linked to the thesis. If the case is approved by the DTP Steering Group, the funding continuation will be granted.

Breaking the Silence

The University and Colleges of Cambridge and CUSU have launched a zero tolerance campaign around sexual misconduct called ‘Breaking the Silence – Cambridge speaks out against sexual misconduct’. The campaign highlights a range of new prevention, support and reporting measures. The Breaking the Silence website gives contact points for help, advice and support as well as setting out expectations around mutual respect and consideration and the zero tolerance approach to sexual misconduct. Staff and students are also given information about the University, College and external reporting options via the website. 

Dignity at work

There is no place for any form of harassment, victimisation or sexual misconduct at Cambridge. Such behaviour is contrary to the values and ideals of our shared community, subverts the University’s mission and core values and diminishes the dignity and integrity of all parties.
