About

We welcome enquiries from anyone who would like to carry out research in any aspect of design or in technology in education. The Design programme is offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London.

Overview

Practice-based MPhil and PhD

  • Both the MPhil and the PhD can be linked to design practice.
  • A practice-based MPhil explores new approaches to, or applications of, existing knowledge by means of practice.
  • A practice-based PhD creates new knowledge by means of practice.
  • In either case, your final presentation will include both an original, creative practice component and a thesis that will contextualise this practice.
  • Since the practice component of your research constitutes a significant part of the final examination, the thesis requirement is reduced.

Design Star Centre for Doctoral Training

Goldsmiths is a member of the Design Star Centre for Doctoral Training, which brings the Department of Design together with other leading design departments at the University of Brighton; Loughborough University; The Open University; and the University of Reading. The Design programme is offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London.

It aims to develop future intellectual leadership in design: research leaders of the future who are equipped to make a difference to contemporary social concerns, knowledge production and creative practices. This requires an approach to research training that places diversity and interdisciplinarity at its core.

Design Star brings together world-class research in:

  • design for industry
  • interaction design
  • design process
  • communication design
  • sustainable design
  • design history
  • curation
  • creative practice.

Its spread of design disciplines is linked by a common approach to design that encourages the integration of history, theory and engagement.
