Students wishing to enter the London Graduate School to undertake research in any aspect of the critical humanities, across its entire disciplinary range, are warmly encouraged to apply for an AHRC-funded TECHNE award.

Initial enquiries may be sent to the LGS directors Prof. Martin McQuillan () and Prof. Simon Morgan Wortham () or to other members of the LGS executive.

TECHNE is a consortium of seven universities including Kingston, the home of the London Graduate School, and is one of the eleven Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships established nationally to offer funding and support for PhD study. TECHNE’s aim is to foster highly motivated young scholars. Its students will benefit  from academic expertise and a research environment of the highest quality, as well as excellent training facilities and extensive opportunities to engage with partners in the arts and the cultural sector.

Applications are welcome from the following disciplines and sub-disciplines:

Art History, Contemporary Art Practice, Creative Arts, Creative Writing, Design History, English Language and Literature, Film Theory and/or Practice, Heritage, Museum and Galleries, History, Media and Culture, Music, Musicology and Sound Studies, Philosophy, Photography

TECHNE offers around 35 awards per annum for students who are applying to undertake PhD study. Students may apply to TECHNE for a doctoral award by submitting a TECHNE application through Kingston University. It is not possible to submit an application directly to TECHNE: you must apply through one of the member universities.

A CV and proposal must be submitted by 9 January 2015. The deadline for complete applications is midnight Saturday 7 February 2015 (ie. by the end of Saturday).
