The Arts and Dementia PhD Studentships – deadline 11 May 2015

Three PhD studentships Applications are available at the University of Worcester and the University of Nottingham designed to explore the impact of engagement with creative activities on people with all stages of dementia and on their family and professional carers.

The Alzheimer’s Society has funded 8 Doctoral Training Centres in various aspects of dementia to help to increase research knowledge and capacity in this area. TAnDem is the name of the Doctoral Training Centre (DTC) that has been funded to focus on studying The Arts and Dementia. It is a partnership between the Association for Dementia Studies at the University of Worcester and the Centre for Dementia at the University of Nottingham. The TAnDem PhD studentships are designed to remedy this gap in scientific knowledge and understanding. One unique aspect of TAnDem is that it offers the complementary resources of two universities to all the PhD candidates.
