The AHRC Northern Bridge Consortium for Doctoral Training Partnership (NBCDTP) offers tuition fees and £14,777 per annum funding for 42 months (http://www.northernbridge.ac.uk/
). Award-holders may extend their studentship to pursue an approved research training programme or to undertake a placement by a further 6 months, and successful applicants can apply for additional funding during their studentship to support their research costs and individual training needs. In addition to the standard PhD pathway, students can apply under the collaborative doctoral pathway, through which applicants develop a research project in collaboration with a partner organisation, and spend a substantial portion of their doctoral study at the partner organisation.
The ESRC Northern Ireland and North East Doctoral Training Partnership (NINEDTP) offer +3, +3.5, 1+3 and, for Language Based Area Studies only, 2+3 awards (https://www.ninedtp.ac.uk/
). The awards cover tuition fees and for the duration of the degree. Award-holders may also apply for research training support grants, internships and placements, and overseas fieldwork and difficult language training, as well as overseas institutional visits. However, these need to be laid out clearly at the application stage and are considered on a case-by-case basis. In addition to the standard PhD pathway, students can apply under the collaborative doctoral pathway, through which applicants develop a research project in collaboration with a partner organisation.
