As a member of the techne Doctoral Training Partnership, University of Surrey students are eligible to apply for Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) studentships. Techne is a consortium of nine universities in London and the South East of England, offering a rich and diverse training programme for doctoral students with a focus on interdisciplinarity and developing career potential both in and beyond higher education. Techne’s training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by Techne’s fifteen partner organisations (including the Barbican, Natural History Museum, The National Archives, UNICEF and Science Museum) in the cultural sector.

Techne offers a unique model for collaborative research skills training for postgraduate research students across ten higher education institutions (Royal Holloway University of London, Brunel University, Kingston University, Loughborough University, Royal College of Art, University of Brighton, University of Roehampton, University of the Arts London, University of Surrey and the University of Westminster). Techne’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public and professional life. Students will benefit from a diversity of training opportunities and be able to draw on supervisory expertise from across the Consortium

Studentships are awarded by Techne to the best students put forward by its member universities.

All Scholarships from University of Surrey


Level of study/qualifications required varies depending on the chosen PhD Programme.

Open to UK and international candidates. EU students are now classed as international students and the UKRI/AHRC competition is now open to all international students who can apply for a full fees and stipend award.

Studentships are open to students who have already started their doctoral study but must have at least 50% of the funded period of an AHRC award (usually 18 months full time) remaining at the time they start their scholarship.
