We are now offering a new PhD in Creative Practice in Architecture available to practicing architects.
Research training is offered at bi-annual design symposia within the School. The final assessment is via a portfolio of design work of original composition presented as an exhibition with an accompanying written commentary of 40,000-50,000 words prepared for the viva voce examination.
This programme is aimed at design professionals who wish to advance their discipline through the act of practice and within the workplace. Its aim is to encourage and enable those who are at the forefront of creative practice to undertake research through design focusing on specialisms developed through practice and to fill the current void of doctoral-level practitioners in the discipline.
Always verify the dates on the programme website.
