PhD opportunities

Learn about the different options available for further study with us.

We welcome PhD enquiries on any topic in film, television, media or audiovisual culture.

Work with our team of outstanding scholars in a friendly environment. Specialist research skills training and a range of optional courses will support your academic and professional development.

We encourage PhD students to engage in current debates in film and screen studies. You'll also take on professional tasks early in your candidature.

We host regular events for PhD students. These include the annual PGR conference, supported by Centre for International Film Research.

We have an exemplary record with our PhD students. Many have their thesis published as a book once completed.

PhD students are often energetic and become involved in initiatives. Each year, our PGRs hold an annual conference showcasing student research.

Recent conferences organised by PGR and Postdoc students have included:

  • Virtual Space and Interactivity in Streaming Media within Transnational Contexts 
  • International Perceptions of China: Chinese Culture in International Audio-Visual Culture
