The UCL, Bloomsbury and East London Doctoral Training Partnership is an ESRC funded organisation that unites five leading social science institutions.
The DTP’s strategic vision is driven by a shared emphasis on interdisciplinary research; a multiplicity of existing connections within and across the partners; a joint apetite for engagement with non-academic partners; and a collective embedding in London, a super-diverse city with global reach and one of the largest populations of doctoral students anywhere in the world.
We are guided by a collective aim to foreground learning how to work across boundaries(disciplinary, institutional and professional) and work to produce graduates with the ability and flexibility to operate at the highest level within the London context and elsewhere, moving between local, national and international concerns.
