Technē is now welcoming applications for fully-funded studentships
across the arts and humanities beginning in autumn 2019.
At Westminster we are offering technē studentships in the following areas:
- Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM): The
Centre was judged by REF 2014 as the UK’s leading research centre
working across art and design, with a rating of 95% of our research as
world leading or internationally excellent.
- Communication and Media Research Institute (CAMRI): A world-leading
centre of media and communication research that conducts research and
research education focused on the role of media, culture and
communication(s) in society and the critical study of media and power.
- English Literature, English Language and Visual Culture (part of
School of Humanities)
The research publications of the School’s staff in English Language,
Literature and Linguistics were ranked by REF 2014 as being in the top
20 of departments in the UK and we also have internationally excellent
research in Visual Culture.
Studentships include maintenance and fees for three years for a full
time student, or six years for a part-time student.
Normally to be eligible for a full award a student must have no
restrictions on how long they can stay in the UK and have been
ordinarily resident in the UK for at least 3 years prior to the start of
the studentship. EU students are eligible for a full award if they have
been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the three-year period
preceding the start of the studentship (including for full time
education). Residential eligibility is based on a physical presence in
the UK. To be eligible for a fees-only award, a student must be
ordinarily resident in a member state of the EU.
Studentships are open to students who have already started their
doctoral study but they must have at least 50% of the funded period of
an AHRC award (usually 18 months) remaining at the time they start their
