MPhil and PhD students follow their own bespoke research route within the School, supported by expertise from staff within the School and the wider College. Students on our new MRes (Communication Design) are guided through a well-planned curriculum and are supported through both local and College-wide expertise.
Many of the School’s research students develop collaborative research initiatives during the course of their studies, drawing on the expertise of partner organisations, including creative businesses, cultural and academic institutions. Our current research students’ topics interface with a wide range of subjects including biology, geography, English language and literature, psychology, architecture, social and computer sciences.
The School has an established track record of securing funding for individual research projects, and seven of our students are currently in receipt of AHRC Doctoral awards. We also support individual student applications to external funding schemes.
