Research Study


The Department runs a large PhD doctoral research programme, with students from across the world. Research can also be pursued at Masters level via the MRes degree.

In recent years we have increasingly supervised part-practice PhD degrees, and the intersection of research and media practice is an area we are looking to expand.

Goldsmiths has quota grants from both AHRC and ESRC to support doctoral research in the Department. The application procedure is highly competitive, but is open to all students who are accepted onto our PhD programme.

Goldsmiths is a part of a new block grant AHRC studentship partnership which means that we will be entering successful applicants to our PhD programmes to a competition for these studentships.

More details of this process will be announced shortly. Please see AHRC funding.

Enquiries should go, in the first instance, to Dr Richard MacDonald, PhD admissions tutor.
