We collaborate with other higher education institutes and external partners to provide additional opportunities for our postgraduate researchers.
Doctoral Training Partnerships
The Faculty is part of a wider network of institutions and cultural partnerships through its membership of NWCDTP (North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership)
This is an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) funded Doctoral Training Partnership which offer postgraduate studentships and training across a full range of arts and humanities disciplines through a consortium of seven institutions and eight partner organisations in the North West.
The NWSSDTC (North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Centre) is one of 15 doctoral training partnerships in the UK and brings together the Universities of Manchester, Lancaster, Liverpool and Keele.
Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) studentships are available across the full range of social science disciplines and students have access to research expertise and training across the four constituent Universities.
All of our postgraduate researchers have the opportunity to apply for placements and internships with a variety of external institutions, partners and businesses. Taking a placement provides a great opportunity to engage in knowledge exchange and to develop professional networking opportunities for your future career development.
You may also propose your own placement to one of our existing partners or to an organisation that would be beneficial for your PhD research.
As a leading research university, we have established connections all over the world. We are keen to support our postgraduate researchers to fully participate in the international research community through conference attendance, fieldwork and institutional visits and exchanges.
PGR Exchange Opportunities
We have established Postgraduate Researcher Exchange programmes with a small number of institutions around the world. These exchanges offer our postgraduate researchers an excellent opportunity to develop networks, access additional research resources and experience the academic culture of another country. The faculty provides financial support of up to £3000 to contribute to the costs associated with taking part in these exchanges.
Current exchange partners are:
- National University of Singapore
- European University Institute
- Indiana University (including John Ryland’s Research Institute – Lilly Library Exchange)
- University of Copenhagen
