Research Degrees
  • Research Degrees

    We encourage applications for practice-based and/or written research degrees in arts, design and media disciplines. A written research degree presents the research methodology, research process, theoretical/historical analysis and insights in written thesis.

    A practice-based research degree will include an element of your own creative work, for example, fine art practice, design, film, performance, photography.

    In such cases, the ‘thesis’ presented is understood to mean the totality of the work submitted for the degree, which will include the creative work itself (or its documentation) and a written text contextualising the research.
