In order to receive Postgraduate scholarships the Research Councils are increasingly forcing Universities to work together in Consortia which are sometimes made up many partners, or institutions that cover a large geographic area. Institutions that receive funding from multiple Councils may be in differently constituted Consortia for each of those and small or single subject HEIs may feel marginalised when working with larger Institutions within a Consortium. How do research offices support these DTP/CDTs in an efficient manner to ensure the best experience for the Research Offices, the Research Councils and the funded (and unfunded) students? Through two case studies, one from a smaller rural institution and one from a large London-based institution, followed by group discussion, this session aims to bring together managers and administrators who work with DTP/CDTs and PGR students to share best practice in how to work in larger or smaller Consortia and how to provide the best experience for the PG students at the institutions.
Key Learning Points:
- To increase understanding of funding through partnerships
- To share best practice on how to work with other Institutions in Doctoral Training Partnerships
- To share best practice on how to best comply with RCUK regulations
- To share best practice on how to best provide Doctoral Training to funded and unfunded students as part of Doctoral Training Partnerships
