The Heritage Consortium will soon be awarding PhD studentships designed to train the next generation of Heritage professionals and researchers. The studentships encourage interdisciplinary research that is engaged directly with local communities, museums and other partner institutions. As part of the programme you will receive specialist training in Heritage Research and work with supervisors from across the institutions contained in the Consortium.
