Course summary

This course offers you the opportunity to explore innovative practice as research through the production of an original body of work.

You will develop your practice from a coherent research process, demonstrate a critical appreciation of the context of production and siting, draw upon and extend existing literature and practices, and show that the research makes an original contribution to knowledge.

Alternatively, a PhD in Photography can be wholly historical or theoretical, conforming to the conventions of a traditional written theses.

For some candidates PhD research enables them to progress their career by enabling their research to develop, and by establishing their research capabilities and credentials. The final resulting work can be submitted for publication or exhibition to appropriate contexts. For others, the PhD represents an opportunity to commit to a passion or interest that is both personally meaningful, and results in a high-level qualification. PhD supervision offers opportunities for networking, discussing and resolving the siting of the new knowledge/body of work, and also results in the candidates achieving a set of higher skills which can be applied to a wide range of contexts.

Researchers have the opportunity to study, discuss or exhibit their work, engaging with colleagues from a range of areas via seminars, symposia and conferences both on-line and off-line: or travelling to meet with key figures from the area you wish to immerse yourself in.

Our staff work in transdisciplinary supervisory teams with external experts to ensure that your research is supported at the highest level.
