CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership Studentships

Our intellectual environment fosters the problem-driven and cross- and interdisciplinary research vital to addressing the new challenges of a world shaped by the speed of technological innovation and global change. Understanding and promoting the value of human culture and creativity in addressing such challenges is central to the CHASE vision of postgraduate research and professional development.

We support discipline-based projects, but also specialise in interdisciplinary research and research in emerging fields of study and creative practice. Our research and training environment encourages our doctoral students to develop interdisciplinary methodologies and to explore how to integrate their research with developments in digital technologies. In addition, our network of partnerships with leading arts and humanities organisations and creative industries provides an outstanding resource for future CHASE scholars.

The CHASE DTP will be awarding up to 75 studentships for entry in October 2017 which are open to UK and EU applicants. UK resident awards consist of fees and a tax-free maintenance stipend and EU resident awards are a fees-only award.

CHASE welcomes applications for full and part-time modes of study as well as cross-institutional supervision arrangements across the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership. Please discuss these options with your prospective supervisor and/or School PGR Director.
