MPhil/PhD in Art and Design
There are three routes to a higher degree:
This is for graduates who want to gain a strong knowledge and understanding of the subject, and then take the discipline forward through an approved programme of original research.
New route PhD
The new route is for recently qualified graduates with good honours degrees who are keen to progress immediately to a research experience. This will prepare you for a career in which the ability to undertake research will play a key role.
Traditional route PhD
This route entails a programme of research which normally takes three years of full time study. You can choose to take it part time over a period of up to six years. The traditional route enables capable and qualified individuals with a masters degree to pursue an original research investigation into a chosen topic within a field of enquiry.
We design an individual research programme to suit your topic, and you will regularly meet your supervisor for guidance and progress monitoring.
Careers and employability
You'll develop in-depth expertise in your chosen area which can lead to real career progression either in business or in academia.
New Route PhD
The New Route PhD is intended for recently qualified graduates with good honours degrees, who are keen to progress immediately to a research experience in their preparations for a career in which the ability to undertake research will play a key role.
For MPhil/PhD programmes, we normally expect you to have a first or second class honours degree, a Masters degree from a UK University or qualifications that we consider to be equivalent.
