The North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWCDTP) offers postgraduate studentships, supervision, training, and skills development across the full range of the AHRC’s disciplines. It is one of eleven Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) and seven Centres for Doctoral Training (CDTs) brought about for this purpose.
The AHRC NWCDTP provides funding for postgraduate researchers to undertake doctoral research and training. They have 15 discipline Pathways broadly organized as Histories, Cultures & Heritage; Creative and Performing Arts; Languages and Literature.
NWCDTP has made a commitment to supporting those communities that often have been marginalized. They are at the beginning of a process that will hopefully address the underrepresentation and inequalities within their organization and is working to address imbalances and to promote equality of opportunity.

Ring Fenced Studentships
The NWCDTP is committed to equality of opportunity and working to ensure our cohort of postgraduate researchers reflects the diverse community we serve. We have introduced a range of positive measures to assist in achieving these commitments, recognizing in particular that postgraduate researchers from Global Majority, Disabled, and Socioeconomically Unequal communities are currently underrepresented in our programs and across the UK university sector. The introduction of these measures follows a review of our recruitment processes and forms part of a three-year plan we have developed to achieve greater diversity and better equality outcomes.
One of the steps we have taken as part of that plan was to introduce ring-fenced studentships during a 2-year period (2021-2023). In 2022/3, we will guarantee one candidate from Global Majority (including heritage) communities a studentship. Applicants from these groups will, of course, also be considered as part of our recruitment for all of the available studentships. Students who consider themselves to be from socioeconomically unequal backgrounds are able to apply for our Broken Pipeline scholarship. Finally, as a means for addressing problematic disparity within the discipline, we are offering one ring-fenced studentship to a Female (female in this context meaning anyone identifying as a woman) Philosophy student. These ring-fenced studentships, apart from the Broken Pipeline scholarship, are open to International applicants.
Applicants wishing to apply for one of the ring-fenced studentships will have the opportunity to identify themselves on the application form as wishing to be considered for these targeted studentships. Their applications will be considered as part of the standard award competition and will be subject to the same assessment criteria and schedule (see how to apply above).
They will be running online application workshops via Zoom for those who are interested in applying. Please find below the dates, times, and details on how to join our workshops :
