The DTP Scotland is run by the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (http://www.sgsah.ac.uk) which offers innovative training and skills development opportunities for its funded students (e.g. Internships, Artist-in-Residency schemes, Summer School, second-language courses). This national provision complements the excellent doctoral training offered by the University of Glasgow.
