Student Experience

Undertaking a Doctoral Training Programme with WRoCAH is about more than academic research. Working with partner organisations and exchanging academic knowledge are essential parts of the student experience. In practice, these extensions of traditional the PhD track have led our researchers onto a range of competitive and creatively varied post-graduate opportunities.

Research Employability Projects are a 1-3 month placement with one of our partner organisations or an employer that researchers choose to work.  They are designed to widen the academic skillset and to give students a chance to look outside of their specific research area.
