About this program
We support innovative art research in Fine Art, Curating, Art Writing and across disciplines.
The MPhil/PhD Art is a 3-4 year (full-time) or 6-8 year (part-time) research project, the pursuit of which may involve your already-established practice, or may require the development of new modes of practice specific to the project.
There are three different pathways that you can choose to study:
- Pathway 1: Thesis by Practice
- Pathway 2: Thesis by Practice and Written Dissertation
- Pathway 3: Thesis by Written Dissertation
To find out more about each of these pathways, please see the ‘Structure’ tab below.
We consider all elements of the MPhil/PhD to be sites of rigorous experimentation. Bearing this in mind, we understand that the shape and trajectory of your research may change as you make connections and develop your practice throughout the course of your research. We will work with you to develop the most appropriate – and generative – means of pursuing, documenting and disseminating your findings.
You should normally have (or expect to be awarded) a taught Masters in a relevant subject area.
You might also be considered for some programmes if you aren’t a graduate or your degree is in an unrelated field, but have relevant experience and can show that you have the ability to work at postgraduate level.
We accept a wide range of international qualifications. Find out more about the qualifications we accept from around the world.
If English isn’t your first language, you will need an IELTS score (or equivalent English language qualification) of 6.5 with a 6.5 in writing and no element lower than 6.0 to study this programme. If you need assistance with your English language, we offer a range of courses that can help prepare you for postgraduate-level study.
