The University of Roehampton, London, is part of a consortium group called
TECHNE that has recently been awarded a doctoral research training
partnership grant of over £13 million, creating 176 doctoral studentships
over the next 5 years.

Expressions of interest in these funded doctoral studentships are therefore
welcome from potential PhD candidates at the University of Roehampton,

Details of how to submit expressions of interest are included in the
attached flyer, although potential applicants are also asked to email a
brief document (c500 words), outlining their proposed area of research and
indicating the names of any academic staff with whom they have been, or
plan on being, in discussion.

This should be sent to [log in to unmask] as soon as possible.

Supervisory teams will then be identified for the potential candidate, and
the teams will then work with the applicant to develop a formal application
for the TECHNE scholarships.

The University of Roehampton, London, is in partnership for TECHNE with
Royal Holloway, the University of Brighton, Kingston University, the Royal
College of Art, the University of the Arts, and the University of Surrey.

Roehampton’s Graduate School has set up an institutional website, where
further information about the studentships, subject areas and so on can be


In addition, there is a TECHNE website, hosted by the University of
Brighton available here:
