The AHRC is unique in the world as a national funding agency supporting both arts and humanities research. Training the next generation of researchers is central to the AHRC’s strategy, supporting future Arts and Humanities academics as well as providing them with opportunities beyond the academy, both to develop their careers and to maximize the impact of their research. Full information about our commitment to skills development can be found in the AHRC Strategy 2013-2018 (PDF, 3.6MB).
