The Heritage Consortium is coordinated by the History Department at the University of Hull and consists of Bradford, Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds Beckett, Northumbria, Sheffield Hallam and Teesside universities.
We work in strategic partnership with eight regional, national and international heritage organisations and networks, as well as with a wider network of over 70 partner organisations, to deliver doctoral training and to promote research in all aspects of heritage.
The Consortium was established in 2013 and is supported by £1.85 million of postgraduate funding from the Arts and Humanities Research Council and £1.11 million provided by its seven members.
