Collaboration

We collaborate with other higher education institutions and external partners to provide additional opportunities for our postgraduate researchers.

Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs)

Interior of Manchester Museum

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 DTP which offers postgraduate studentships and training across a full range of arts and humanities disciplines.

The NWSSDTP (North West Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership) is one of 15 ESRC-funded 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. 

PGR Placements and Knowledge Exchange Projects 

All of our postgraduate researchers have the opportunity to apply for funded placements and Knowledge Exchange projects to collaborate with non-academic partners in the public, private and third sectors. 

Engaging with external partners provides a great opportunity to create an impact with your research and develop skills and networks which are highly beneficial for professional development and employability both inside and outside academia. 

We foster cross-sectorial collaboration, co-creation and knowledge exchange through a series of different schemes and initiatives

Manchester-Melbourne Dual PhD 

The University of Manchester is offering dual PhD awards in collaboration with the University of Melbourne, Australia for the academic year 2020/21. This is an exciting opportunity for prospective PhD candidates who will benefit from research training at two leading universities and be immersed in a multidisciplinary and collaborative environment at both institutions.
