About

We welcome enquiries from anyone who would like to carry out research in any aspect of design or in technology in education. The Design programme is offered at the Goldsmiths, University of London.

Overview

Practice-based MPhil and PhD

  • Both the MPhil in Design and the PhD at the Goldsmiths, University of London can be linked to design practice.
  • A practice-based MPhil explores new approaches to, or applications of, existing knowledge by means of practice.
  • A practice-based PhD creates new knowledge by means of practice.
  • In either case, your final presentation will include both an original, creative practice component and a thesis that will contextualise this practice.
  • Since the practice component of your research constitutes a significant part of the final examination, the thesis requirement is reduced. Assessment is by thesis and viva voce.
