Course summary

We support innovative art research in Fine Art, Curating, Art Writing and across disciplines.

The MPhil/PhD Art is a 3-4 year (full-time) or 6-8 year (part-time) research project, the pursuit of which may involve your already-established practice or may require the development of new modes of practice specific to the project.

Research degrees in this department have two elements:

  • the research work that you carry out individually under supervision
  • a programme of seminars and installations which bring you into dialogue with other research students and a wider community inside and outside Goldsmiths

We welcome proposals for research in any area of fine art, curating and art writing. We give priority to those with proposals for research within the areas of interest of our staff.

The Department of Art has nine specialist Art Practice Areas providing support for a wide variety of processes that complement and extend traditional disciplines, such as metalwork, casting, woodwork, ceramics, textiles, print, photography, 3D printing, graphics, video editing, animation and 3D modelling.

Full time students currently have access to studio space in either Lewisham Way or Deptford Creek buildings. All MPhil/PhD students may make use of bookable spaces subject to availability, and regularly exhibiting practice-based work is encouraged. A programme of installations functions as a means of public engagement with research projects.

Research degrees are supported by further courses and professional development provided by the Graduate School.

There are three different pathways:

  • Pathway 1 - Thesis by Practice (accompanied by a critical account)
  • Pathway 2 - Thesis by Practice and Written Dissertation
  • Pathway 3 - Thesis by Written Dissertation
