In addition to the taught post-graduate programmes, the Graduate School also supports the needs of the research student community at ECA.
The ECA Postgraduate Office provides research training, co-ordinates research student seminars and ensures that the University’s Research Student Code of Practice is followed, liaises with supervisors and works in partnership with the academic discipline areas of ECA, the College of Humanities and Social Science and wider University on matters relating to research students.
At present there are more than 200 registered MPhil/PhD students studying on a full-time or part-time basis. Some of these are undertaking research with a large element of creative practice, in areas such as fine art, film, music or applied design, with others primarily pursuing more traditional scholarly text-based modes in fields such as history of art. Many of them are from outside the European Union, making the graduate research community particularly international in character.
