artsmethods North West supports research training in the arts and humanities across 7 institutions funded by the AHRC: The North West Consortium Doctoral Training Partnership (NWCDTP).

It brings together institutions that have large volumes of world-class research with those that have smaller pockets of research excellence in the North West. Through its continuing partnership with the AHRC, the NWCDTP develops world-class postgraduates through high-quality subject-specific and interdisciplinary training. A distinctive feature of the NWCDTP is its combination of student learning and skills for employability through productive engagement with the creative economy in the region. It is uniquely positioned to build on disciplinary groupings, collaborations, established media and major knowledge exchange hubs such as the AHRC KE hub at Lancaster University and Salfordís MediaCityUK campus.

The NWCDTP is committed to fostering excellence and diversity in arts and humanities training and research, and responding to the needs of the community.
