New world class training centre benefits Humanities

The Universities of Bristol, Exeter and Bath have come together to form one of the UK’s largest Centres of postgraduate research training in fields ranging from economics and human geography to history and psychology.

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has granted doctoral training centre status to the collaboration. The South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC) has been accredited to offer a hub of world-class social sciences research. As one of only 21 Centres in the UK, the SWDTC will be part of a national network to be launched in October 2011 that will train a new generation of researchers. The SWDTC has been allocated 41 studentships per annum which includes 3 studentships for the College of Humanities in History.

Further details on the ESRC History studentships can be found on our funding page.
