Applications from outside the European Economic Area (EEA) especially should note that you can only apply for visas to study in the UK after you have received an offer of a place to study and it can take some time for visa applications to be processed.
All shortlisted applications are circulated to members of staff in the Department of Art who supervise PhDs for feedback in order to find an appropraite supervisory match. If an appropriate supervisory match can be found, the applicant is invited for interview.
*Our MRes programmes are officially accredited as research degree training by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), the UK&rsquo s leading research and training agency addressing economic and social concerns.
Research degrees in the Faculties of Arts and Divinity are usually offered to students who have already obtained a good Masters degree in their chosen area of research.
This programme is designed for those whose work is primarily in research or involves a substantial research element and enables them to receive academic credit for that work, assuming it is at doctoral level.
The aim of the proposal is to determine your area of research interest so you can be matched with an appropriate supervisor, and to give you an opportunity to demonstrate to us that you have the aptitude to undertake doctoral level research. It is the most important document submitted as part of your application, so we strongly encourage you to spend time preparing it and to take into account these guidelines.
Normally students will have a good undergraduate Honours degree (UK Upper Second Class Honours or equivalent) and a Masters degree with a dissertation component. If you are seeking funding through one of the Research Councils (UK/EU students only), you will need to hold a minimum Upper Second Class Honours degree, although often these awards are won by those with First Class Honours due to high levels of competition.
