Programme Structure

All of our research students benefit from Edinburgh College of Art's (ECA) 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. On occasion more than two supervisors will be assigned, particularly where the degree brings together multiple disciplines.

The research culture is supported by seminar and public lecture programmes, and discussion groups.

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 ECA at the University, consisting of workshops on research methodologies designed for students working in art, architecture, and allied disciplines.
