Research Degrees

The School of Arts offers postgraduate research in a diverse range of areas with specialists available to supervise study in the fields of Screen MediaEnglish, Music, Games Design and Contemporary Drama and Performance Studies. The School has distinctive expertise in offering practice based MPhil and PhD programmes tailored to your individual interests as well offering the more traditional degree based on the written thesis or a mixture of the two. There are opportunities for part-time teaching on the School's undergraduate programmes for postgraduates with appropriate skills.

Please read the School’s Admissions Procedures (pdf) before submitting your application for an MPhil or PhD. Details of our fees can be found here.

You are advised to contact a member of staff in each subject area who will help you with your proposal or put you in touch with another member of staff with appropriate research interests who can advise you.

The School holds an annual conference for research students - Researching the Arts.  Take a look at this year's Programme which was held at the University on 18-19 June.
