    Programme Description

    You can register either for research based on practice and a written element, or for research by written thesis only. However, the generative and reflexive activity of practice is central to the Department´s research culture, and it sees the first category of research as reflecting its academic strengths. In this case, practice is seen as primary. It must exemplify and locate the ideas developed in conjunction with the written part of the thesis. At research level, the Department´s aim is to support reflection upon its central concern with practice, both within the contexts of contemporary art and within the academic environment.

    As a research student, you should be concerned to contextualise your practice in relation to other cultural production. Empirical research is understood as essential to innovative practice. You will need to record the practice which you undertake as part of your thesis, and retainable documentation of the practice - slides, photographs, video, and other appropriate visual material - must form part of your final submission.

    We provide full-time practice-based research students with studio or office accommodation as appropriate within the postgraduate centre; we expect part-time students to have their own studio or office as appropriate, which is subject to the same conditions as for part-time MFA students (MFA in Art Practice and MFA in Art Writing).
