Engagement in the future of doctoral training
AHRC is deeply committed to doctoral training and to securing the future of the next generation of arts and humanities researchers.
As part of this commitment, AHRC has commissioned CRAC/Vitae to undertake an engagement exercise to develop our thinking around the future of doctoral provision in the arts and humanities. We have appointed them to engage a wide range of stakeholders with the aim of ensuring that the AHRC identifies the best way to prioritise its funding to provide the best possible support for doctoral study, effectively facilitate the development of doctoral graduate careers, and adapt to the changing needs of the diverse sectors invested in arts and humanities research and training.
The CRAC team will provide a report, based on this engagement, to the AHRC outlining possible future options for change for consideration by AHRC in developing its future strategy and priorities for supporting doctoral training.
This exercise is to inform future strategy and does not impact on any current awards.
AHRC is keen to ensure that a wide range of stakeholders engage with CRAC/Vitae on this exercise to ensure that it has a broad set of inputs to inform the development of a doctoral model which embraces a diversity of creative and innovative approaches.
CRAC/Vitae are keen to engage with a wide range of people with an interest in Arts and Humanities doctoral provision. If you are interested in being part of the engagement exercise, please register your interest here. Please be aware that for practical reasons it may not be possible to engage with everyone who is interested.
