A range of organisations in the public, private and third sector are working in partnership with the Wales DTP.

Collaborative Studentships

Organisations offer in-kind or financial support (and sometimes both) to research training, in an arrangement that is designed to be mutually beneficial.


Our internships give PhD students an opportunity to gain vital experience and develop skills whilst the host organisation can benefit from the findings of the research project and the ‘critical friendship’ of a researcher.

The Welsh Government; Welsh Joint Education Committee (WJEC); Carmarthenshire County Council and City & County of Swansea; Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board; Cerebra; Llamau; Natural Resources Wales; Health and Care Research Wales; Ordnance SurveyWelsh Water; National Botanical Garden of Wales; Shell Global Solutions (UK); South Wales Fire & Rescue Service; the South Wales Workers’ Educational Association (WEA); The Wiley Journal of Law and Society; Irwin Mitchell Solicitors; International Commission for Missing Persons; Food Dudes Health; The Federation of City Farms and Community Gardens; the Scottish Forestry Commission; SADS UK, and The Wales Probation Trust.

Your Organisation and the Next Generation of Social Scientists

Our partnerships contribute to meeting our objective to develop ‘robust mechanisms for knowledge exchange and knowledge transfer’. Non-academic organisations can have a genuine stake in a social science research project and a role in producing the next generation of leading social scientists.

We are keen to do more to build and maintain such relationships. Please contact the DTP Director if you are based in a non-academic organisation in the private, public or third sector and would like an informal and exploratory discussion about the possibilities.
