Following on from our exceptional performance in the Research Excellence Framework 2014, the University of Plymouth is pleased to announce the availability of 50 studentships across the University for study commencing in 2015/16. Within the Faculty of Arts and Humanities, doctoral studentships are being offered for student-led research projects that directly relate to the theme of histories, memorialisation and memory work, which is to be a key focus of the University’s new Creative Arts and Humanities Research Institute (CAHRI).
