About

The Design programme offered by The University of Edinburgh provides a highly dynamic and supportive research environment for our large and diverse graduate community as demonstrated in our 100 percent score in the research environment category of the Research Excellence Framework (REF).

Overview

Design research students at Design programme offered by The University of Edinburgh can benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary research environment, which attracts postgraduate researchers across a number of fields, and is further informed by collaborative exchanges with colleagues elsewhere in the University. 

This approach has attracted funding from major providers, including the UK Research Councils and institutions from the public, private and not-for-profit sectors in the arts, humanities, science and medicine.

Training and support

All of our research students benefit from ECA’s interdisciplinary approach and all are assigned two research supervisors. 

The 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. On occasion more than two supervisors will be assigned, particularly where the degree brings together multiple disciplines.
