PhD Studentships in the Arts and Humanities

The Open University - FASS

Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership

Open University/AHRC PhD Studentships 

The Open University is pleased to offer Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funding through the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership (OOC DTP). The DTP is a consortium of three universities underpinned by world-class research and training environments, supported by strategic partnerships with the BBC World Service, the National Trust and British Telecom.

The Open-Oxford-Cambridge DTP will be awarding more than 385 AHRC-funded PhD studentships over a five-year period and up to 77 studentships (part-time or full-time) are available across the consortium for October 2021 entry. AHRC PhD studentships are available via the Open University across all three AHRC subject classifications: ‘Histories, Cultures and Heritage’, ‘Creative and Performing Arts’, and ‘Languages and Literature’. Full details of eligible subject areas are in the Further Particulars (see below). EU nationals who are resident in the UK are advised to consult AHRC guidelines on eligibility prior to application.

The Open University is internationally recognized for innovative research across the Arts and Humanities. We host a number of major AHRC- and ESRC-funded research projects. We have a strong commitment to cross-disciplinary work, to national and international public engagement, and to creative partnerships with a range of non-university partners.

Awards for UK residents cover all tuition fees and provide a maintenance grant at the standard RCUK rate (£15,285 p.a. in 2020/21). A limited number of awards, including stipend and a contribution towards tuition fees, may also be available for international applicants (subject to residency requirements during the course of study). International applicants should contact the DTP for further information prior to making a formal application.
