You will study in a world-class research environment which enables both practice-led and/or entirely text based PhD research to be developed to the highest level, on this Art and Design programme from Birmingham City University.
A PhD enables you to follow a programme of self-directed, independent study, supported by experienced supervisors who are themselves experts in their area. You will also be supported by the wider research community in Art and Design and you will have regular opportunities to attend research seminars, conferences and symposia.
Our PhD gives you the opportunity to spend time researching and developing a deep understanding of a unique area of interest whilst contributing world-leading insight to the academic specialisms in Art and Design at Birmingham City University.
