Doctoral Training Partnerships (DTPs) form part of a new doctoral training network commissioned in 2016.  We commissioned a national network of 14 institutional and consortia level DTPs to take over from our existing network of Doctoral Training Centres. The DTPs cover the full disciplinary range of the social sciences as well as areas of interdisciplinary research. DTPs provide a flexible range of studentship options which include opportunities to undertake study in collaboration with the public, private and civil society sectors. The DTP network spans research organisations across the UK and will receive its first students in October 2017.
