Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership - Open University/AHRC PhD Studentships

The Open University

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 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 recognised 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.

Eligibility

Any prospective doctoral student wishing to study at a UK research organisation is eligible for studentship funding from UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), including the Arts and Humanities Research Council. The number of awards to international students are limited, however, and will not normally exceed 30% of the total awards in any one year.

The number of awards that the DTP is allowed to make to international students, however, is limited (to 30% of total awards made).

Applicants must meet eligibility requirements for the AHRC and the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP.

Value of award

All UKRI-funded doctoral students are eligible for a full award, comprising a stipend to support living costs (at least £17,668 p.a.) and fees up to the home rate. The DTP partners will cover the gap between the home and overseas fee rates for international students.

Funding is adjusted on a pro-rata basis for part-time students and where the award is for a period of less than 12 months in any year.

Those in receipt of studentships will be eligible for the same benefits as other UKRI-funded students, including additional support for research expenses and individual skills training, funded sick leave (up to 13 weeks in any 12 month period), funded maternity leave, and Disability Support Allowance (DSA).
