Course summary

The Lincoln School of Film and Media offers a collaborative environment in which to undertake research at doctoral level, whether by thesis, practice portfolio plus commentary, or by publication.

Students are able to engage in a structured programme of training to develop practical and critical skills, while benefiting from the School's research expertise spanning media and cultural studies, film and television, and media and heritage.

An experienced supervisory team can offer support and guidance on research and/or practice, funding opportunities, attending conferences, exhibitions and screening, and publishing or exhibiting work in recognised journals and at events.

A vibrant research community exists at the School where regular research seminars take place, offering students the opportunity for further development.

How You Study

Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the majority of time is spent in independent study and research. Students will have meetings with their academic supervisor(s), but the frequency of these will vary depending on individual requirements, subject area, staff availability, and stage of programme.

How You Are Assessed

The PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of the students thesis and ability to present and successfully defend their chosen research topic in an oral examination (viva voce). They are also expected to demonstrate how their research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
