Techne is excited to offer Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding for up to 60 PhD students (part time or full-time) for September 2021 entry.

We welcome applications from talented individuals working across the arts and humanities to be based at one of nine higher education institutions in London and the south-east, Royal Holloway University of London, University of Brighton, Kingston University, University of Roehampton, University of Surrey, University of the Arts London, Brunel University, Loughborough University London and the University of Westminster. The world-class research and training environments of these institutions are enhanced by the partnership’s strategic relations with 13 non-HEI partner organisations ranging from The National Archives to the National Trust.

The vision and the training offered by Techne emphasises the interweaving of critical thinking, making, and reflexive action in the craft of research. More information on our areas of study can be found on our website.
