The White Rose Social Sciences Doctoral Training Partnership (WRDTP), accredited by the Economic and Social Research Council in 2016, is a collaboration across the social sciences at the Universities of Leeds, Sheffield, York, Bradford, Sheffield Hallam, Hull, and Manchester Metropolitan.
The WRDTP builds on the success of the White Rose DTC universities of Sheffield, York and Leeds by bringing in the social sciences research excellence of the Universities of Bradford, Hull, Manchester Metropolitan and Sheffield Hallam.
