The University of Cambridge is home to one of 11 UK Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTP). Funding from the AHRC alongside matched funding from the University provides doctoral scholarships  each year to students from the UK and EU. Studentships are available in all AHRC-designated arts and humanities subject areas offered across the University.

The Cambridge AHRC DTP brings together outstanding UK and EU postgraduate students in a programme that meets and challenges the highest international standards with respect to its intellectual and academic excellence.

One of the highlights of the DTP year is the interdisciplinary Annual Conference, held in September in collaboration with our international partners each of whom send student delegates to the Conference. The Conference is organised by a Student Committee who gain valuable experience in academic event planning, management and delivery. The Conference provides all our participating DTP students with an excellent opportunity to share their research with their peers both within Cambridge and globally, and to create valuable networks for future research and collaboration.
