Our Postgraduate Research Community
The postgraduate community in Arts is one of the largest in the UK or Ireland (over 100 registered PhD students in 2013-14) with students working on a range of theoretical, historical, practice-based and technical projects across the School. The international student population is extremely valued and serves to establish word-wide graduate networks reaching Asia, Latin America, Europe and North America. In 2013, a third of the 43 students conducting research at SARC was either international or from EU countries.
The School offers PhD programmes in all areas of staff research expertise and interests. PhD programmes can consist of thesis only, portfolio of creative practice with commentary and a hybrid submission which combines a written thesis with practice based work.
