Course summary

Course summary

The Creative Practice MRes is a Masters level course, which takes full advantage of the rich culture of practice-based research in art, architecture, design and media based in the University of Westminster's School of Arts and College of Design, Creative and Digital Industries. Over one year full-time or two years part-time, you will develop your own art, media or design practice, supported by an exciting programme of seminars, group discussion, specialist advice and supervision, to complete a major research project related to your creative practice. Your time on the MRes will culminate in an exhibition or screening presentation and a written reflection on your research.

The Creative Practice MRes is an ideal stepping stone to further practice-based PhD research, as well as a unique opportunity to realise an ambitious creative project with the support of research-led practitioners across the field of the arts and media, as part of the internationally renowned Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) – the UK’s top-rated general art and design research centre.

The course offers access to the excellent resources of Westminster's School of Arts, not only through its research culture at CREAM, but also to its excellent facilities in photography, film and media, ceramics and 2D and 3D design.

The course enables you to develop your practice and research skills in arts and media towards the completion of your research project, supported by expert supervision from eminent artists, theorists and designers, as part of CREAM’s extensive practice-based doctoral programme.

You will work in close supervision with a researcher practitioner in your field of specialism, to assist you in the development of your individual research project.

CAREER PATH

The Creative Practice MRes provides the tools to develop a profession in research and scholarship relating to teaching in higher education, working in archival research and related fields, as well as developing your work as a practising artist, curator, designer and writer working in your chosen field.
