Future OU postgraduate research has been recently awarded just over £200,000 funding for the next cohort of the Open-Oxford-Cambridge (OOC) Doctoral Training Programme.

One of 10 Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) across the UK, the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP brings together The Open University, the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge to provide funding and high-quality training to doctoral students in the arts and humanities.

Between 2019 and 2023, the DTP has offered at least 77 AHRC studentships each year for doctoral study, of which a number are Collaborative Doctoral Awards (CDAs), and the new funding will enable two more intakes in 2024 and 2025.

OU DTP lead, Sara Haslam, Professor of Twentieth-Century Literature in the OU’s Faculty of Arts & Social Sciences, said:

“We are working with a range of exciting external partners and academic teams to recruit for this DTP and our Collaborative Doctoral Awards in 2024 and we continue to work with our academics and their partners to develop ideas for future rounds.”
