Award Description

The Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (M4C DTP) is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham, Birmingham City University, the University of Warwick, Coventry University, De Montfort University, the University of Leicester, Nottingham Trent University, and the University of Nottingham.

M4C is awarding up to 80 doctoral studentships for UK/EU applicants for 2019 through an open competition and 11 Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs) through a linked competition with a range of partner organisations in the cultural, creative and heritage sector.  

For 2019 entry, there are two routes to PhD study:

  • Open Doctoral Awards, where you agree a research proposal in any disciplinary and interdisciplinary area of the arts and humanities with your supervisory team. 
  • Collaborative Doctoral Awards, which are co-designed between a Midlands4Cities institution and an external partner organisation. There are 11 CDAs available in 2019, including two hosted by the University of Birmingham.

Value of Award

A full-time studentship award consists of three parts:

  • Payment of approved fees (as set and agreed by the Research Councils) 
  • Maintenance grant (or stipend) for the student 
  • Research Training Support Grant (RTSG) which includes UK/overseas fieldwork and attendance at conferences (by application only for current PhD students)

Eligibility Criteria

These awards are available to UK/EU students, studying full-time over three years or part-time for up to six years.
