PhD Research Degrees in History of Art and/or Archaeology

SOAS University of London

While a research degree should be very rewarding personally, it is also a serious and sometimes intense undertaking. Under the current system, a full-time doctoral student has three years to complete a full draft of her or his thesis and then a further one year for writing up (known as a 3+1 degree). There are always solitary moments when carrying out individual research, even if a department has a strong collegiate atmosphere, as ours does.

It is generally a good idea to have some experience of work outside university before applying to a doctoral programme, for example, in some role in a museum or gallery.
