Winchester School of Art is an exciting, research-intensive environment for full- and part-time postgraduate research students from a range of areas of art, design and global culture.
As a research student you will be supervised by leading academic specialists, headed by Professors John Armitage, Ryan Bishop, Jonathan Harris, Bashir Makhoul and Joanne Roberts; and by Readers Jonathan Faiers, Beth Harland, Sunil Manghani, Jussi Parikka and Nick Stewart.
As a member of the School, you will have access to excellent workshops, study areas and media facilities, lectures by leading academics and professionals, and contact with senior researchers across the University.
Your supervisory team will work with you to identify the research skills training you need and this will be available through a range of programmes offered within the School and by the University’s Researcher Development and Graduate Centre. You will also benefit from support available from Business and Law’s dedicated PhD resources.
Your training will cover research project management, preparation for examination and publication, as well as technical and practical skills appropriate to your project. You will also take part in regular research seminars, the PhD Student Forum, and exhibitions of research outputs. You can present your research at annual conferences and can participate in inter-university symposia and other national and international academic events and exhibitions.
We welcome proposals for MPhil/PhD in Fine Art, Graphic Arts, Media, Fashion, Textiles, and Art and Design Management.
As part of a vibrant research-led University, cross-disciplinary engagement is encouraged and many of our PhD students extend their research across academic disciplines and collaborate with researchers in related areas of the creative arts, and in fields as diverse as archaeology, psychology, biomedical sciences, nanoscience, social sciences and sound engineering.
