 Funded PhD Programme (Students Worldwide)

About the Programme

Norwich University of the Arts is one of the UK’s leading specialist arts, architecture, design, media universities, located in the centre of the historic and thriving city of Norwich. Students join a creative community at a university renowned for outstanding research, teaching quality, industry-standard facilities, and high student satisfaction.

We welcome proposals for practice-based and/or written research degree study across a spectrum of subjects in art, design, architecture, media and performance. A practice-based research degree will include an element of your own creative work, for example, fine art practice, film, design, performance, curation. A written research degree will conventionally be focused on an area of cultural history and theory.

Research degrees at Norwich are offered in partnership with University of the Arts London to ensure creative arts-specific research training and an extensive network of research degree students.

How to Apply

The typical minimum entry requirement is an Upper Second-Class honours degree in a relevant discipline. A Masters qualification is considered particularly valuable preparation for research degree level study. However, we also consider the value of appropriate professional experience, the quality of the proposal and the availability of suitable supervisors and technical resources in determining offers of places to study on the research degree programme.

Preliminary applications should be submitted by either the following deadlines:

Deadline 1: Friday 1 December 2023

Deadline 2: Friday 12 April 2024

Applicants will normally receive feedback within 4 weeks following each deadline.

For further information please contact .

Applicants should complete the University’s Preliminary Application to Study for a Research Degree form. Your application should be accompanied by a 1,000-word proposal that follows the guidelines available in the application pack. Selected applicants will be invited to attend an interview to discuss their proposals.
