A number of full-time University of Westminster PhD Studentships are available to candidates with either Home or Overseas fee status in any area of art starting in September 2016.

The Centre for Research and Education in Arts and Media (CREAM) is the UK's leading centre for research in art and design. The UK's 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) ranked CREAM as one of the top three art and design departments in the UK and number one in the field of UK arts departments with research profiles across both theory and practice. With over 60 doctoral students and more than 30 research active staff, CREAM is a leading provider of both practice-based and theoretical PhD research in photography, film, moving image, digital and experimental media, ceramics, visual art, music, and art-science relationships. We are highly international with research expertise in South and Southeast Asia, the Caribbean, and European media arts. Our students undertake practice-based and theoretical research in contemporary art and in arts and media history.

Eligible candidates will hold at least an upper second class honours BA degree and a Master’s degree.
