Programme Structure

Research supervisors

  • All of our research students benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary approach and all are assigned two research supervisors. Your second supervisor may be from another discipline within ECA, or from somewhere else within the College of Arts, Humanities & Social Sciences or elsewhere within the University, according to the expertise required. 
Research culture
  • The research culture is supported by seminar and public lecture programmes, and discussion groups.
Research training
  • Students are required to take a course (or courses) in research training during their degree at the University. This may take the form of a semester-long course offered within the Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) at the University, consisting of workshops on research methodologies designed for students working in art, architecture, and allied disciplines.
