TECHNE is an AHRC Doctoral Training Partnership, a Consortium of 7 higher education institutions, includ-ing the University of Roehampton, based in London and the Southeast of the UK. This is an opportunity to work with well-known scholars from the Department of Humanities at Roehampton across a broad range of subject areas. Among our academic staff we have some very high-profile theologians, historians, classi-cists and philosophers, whose research, writing and public engagement have put Roehampton on the intellectual map.


Over 5 years (2014-2019), TECHNE will award around 176 PhD studentships at one of its partner institutions. The other partners are: Royal Holloway University of London (coordinator), Brighton Universi-ty, Kingston University, Royal College of Art, Universi-ty of Surrey, University of the Arts London. The Consortium is named TECHNE in reference to the Greek term for craft – it will create a new model for collaborative research skills training for PhD students. TECHNE’s vision is to produce scholars who are highly motivated and prepared for academic, public or professional life. Students will benefit from a diversity of training opportunities and be able to draw on super-visory expertise from across the Consortium. The TECHNE training programme is enhanced by input and placement opportunities provided by13 partner organisations, including the Museum of Lon-don, the Barbican, the Natural History Museum, the British Film Institute, the Victoria & Albert Museum.
