Bath Spa are part of the new AHRC South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership, which will fund 200 PhDs across the arts and humanities at eight universities in the region over a five year period. This is a really great opportunity if you’re considering a composition PhD, with co-supervision between composers at different Partnership universities a possibility (Bath Spa, Bristol, Cardiff and Southampton for music). Note that this is an open competition across all the arts and humanities subjects at the eight universities, with the best proposals receiving funding (there is no institutional or subject quota). If you are interested in applying to do a PhD with me, have a look at my PhD page, the Centre for Musical Research at Bath Spa, and the SWW website. The timescale is quite tight to apply for this year, and please get in touch if you have any questions.
