The University of Westminster is now part of the Technē AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership. The DTP has 57 PhD studentships to give out each year over the next three years (beginning in Sept 2019) in the areas of the arts and humanities. UK applicants are eligible for full studentships. EU students are eligible for fees but not maintenance. Overseas students are not eligible for techne scholarships. See for further details.

Here is how the Technē DTP describes its remit in terms of subject coverage:
“The technē Doctoral Training Partnership provides support across the full range of arts and humanities disciplines, including practice and performance-led research study, in, for example, dance, design, photography and art, also museum studies and conservation, as well as the highest levels of practice in analysis, critical thinking, theory and writing, from archaeology and cultural geography to literature, linguistics, classics and theology. Our member universities share a commitment to excellence in specialist areas key to the future of creative economies: design; performance; digital futures; heritage within and beyond the humanities; critical thinking and analytic skills.”
