technē offers a rich and diverse training programme for doctoral students with a focus on interdisciplinarity and developing career potential both in and beyond higher education. Studentships are awarded by technē to the best students put forward by its member universities. The technē training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by technē’s fifteen partner organisations in the cultural sector. As part of its commitment to supporting knowledge exchange and professional development between its member universities and partner institutions, 20% of technē students will pursue collaborative doctoral programmes.
technē’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life. Students will benefit from a diversity of training opportunities and be able to draw on supervisory expertise from across the Consortium. The name ‘technē’ in reference to the Greek term for craft – it will create a new model for collaborative research skills training for PhD students. As a member of technē, University of Roehampton UK and EU* applicants for PhD study (and some current PhD students)** in the Arts and Humanities are eligible to apply for AHRC studentships. Maintenance and fee rates for 2019/20 are £17,009 for maintenance and £4,327 fees (three years full-time or part-time equivalent for five years). Levels for 2020/21 have not yet been confirmed.
