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.
