PhD Scholarships at Edinburgh College of Art – Art, Design, Architecture & Landscape Architecture, Music, History of Art


About the Programme

At Edinburgh College of Art (ECA) we’re looking for outstanding candidates to take up a number of generous PhD scholarships.

We have a rich and vibrant postgraduate research community with a broad range of academic research interests. We are proud of our world-leading research, which stretches across and beyond the disciplines of our five Schools covering Architecture and Landscape Architecture, Art, Design, History of Art, and Music. 

Applications are invited for research projects that take advantage of the leading research expertise across our Schools. We will aim to provide a supervisory team which will consist of at least two supervisors. Applicants may indicate potential supervisors in their application. 

Scholarship award holders are expected to be energetic members of our postgraduate community, and engage with opportunities to present their work to the wider student and staff body during the period covered by their award. We offer our postgraduates a range of training and development opportunities appropriate to their programme of study.
