Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership


The Midlands3Cities Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP) is a collaboration between Nottingham Trent University; the University of Nottingham; the University of Leicester; De Montfort University; the University of Birmingham and Birmingham City University. It funds PhD study within and across Arts & Humanities disciplines, supported by a range of partnerships with art, museum and heritage institutions - including Nottingham Contemporary.

Midlands3Cities strengthens our established relationship with leading Universities within the region, and the work of an emerging generation of arts and humanities researchers will also enhance our reputation as an innovative international centre for contemporary art. We can offer a context for the development of professional skills, and also an understanding how research benefits, and operates in relationship with, the publicly funded arts sector.

Curator of Public Programmes, Isobel Whitelegg, is working with the DTP to ensure that student applicants who focus research projects on contemporary art and its institutions, curating, arts management and exhibition studies will be supported.

Students need to apply directly with one of the six Universities before 9th January 2014, and institutional procedures and requirements are specific to each.
