Case study: Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP.

”The Inkpath team have been brilliant! They offer friendly and prompt support to administrators and users alike. The team work closely with us to make sure they understand what we’re trying to do and how they can support our work. The Inkpath platform, both the user app and the administration interface, are intuitive and easy to navigate.” – Manager, Open-Oxford-Cambridge Doctoral Training Partnership (DTP)


One of ten Arts and Humanities Research Council Doctoral Training Partnerships across the UK, the Open-Oxford-Cambridge AHRC DTP brings together the Open University, the University of Oxford and the University of Cambridge to provide funding and high-quality training to doctoral students in the arts and humanities.
