CDP students outside the museum, October 2016

IWM supervises several Collaborative Doctoral Award students who are researching their PhDs through the Arts and Humanities Research Council's Collaborative Doctoral Partnerships Scheme. 

CDAs are supervised by a member of staff at IWM and an academic at a UK university. 

The projects offer the possibility for students to combine academic work leading to a doctorate with the acquisition of practical skills and work experience outside the university context.
