Profile Description

Guildhall School invites applications to its doctoral programme, which has a distinct focus on research in, through and for the performing arts. Ranked as the UK's top conservatoire in the Guardian University Guide 2019 for Music and rated Gold in the Teaching Excellence Framework, the School is a global leader of creative and professional practice which promotes innovation, experiment and research.

We support doctoral research across a range of subjects relating to music and theatre: we welcome practice-research in music composition, music performance, opera-making, theatre-making, music therapy and socially-engaged arts practices; as well as investigations of the performing arts through historical, cultural, ethnographic, pedagogical and other perspectives.

Students across these disciplines and subject areas study together on our specialist research training programme which creates opportunities for fruitful exchange and mutual support. Our supervisors include leading researchers and practitioners across a range of disciplines.

Our Open Days provide an informal introduction from the doctoral programme leader and current students, opportunities to ask questions and proposal-writing workshops.
