Vision and Aims

LAHP provides the strongest possible foundation for capacity, quality and creativity for doctoral research in the Arts and Humanities. Working with its HEI and non-HEI partners, LAHP supports doctoral students to become experts in their chosen fields and to develop the skills, knowledge and experience required not only for their research but also for their future careers in academia and beyond.
