What will I learn?

Programme Overview

The Glasgow School of Art has a distinctive specialist, practice-based research culture which is widely recognised internationally. The generation of new knowledge and understanding through creative practice, scholarship and criticism in Fine Art, Design, Craft, Architecture and related fields is central to the concept of research. Our researchers include artists, designers, architects, historians and critics of world standing.

We offer opportunities for part-time and full-time programmes of research and welcome applications for either mode. Enquiries about topics will be considered on their merits and on our capacity to provide appropriate expert supervision.

Studio Provision

For PhD study, studio space is not provided by default. Students can make a case in their application for a project space at specific points in their research, which will be considered in negotiation with local departments and Estates.

Assessment

Students are able to choose, according to their individual programme of research, a mode of submission that best articulates their original contribution to knowledge. This may include a wide range of visual and textual elements, which may be in physical and/or digital formats.
