PhD research study is available in Media Studies, Creative Writing, Journalism, Media and/or Film Practice, Film Studies, Theatre and Theatre Practice, and in Creative Industries development areas.
We would normally expect students starting a PhD or MPhil to hold a first class or a good second-class undergraduate degree. In many cases PhD and MPhil applicants have studied to MA level, though this is not compulsory. We are able to accept students on a distance-learning basis, but they should have already acquired the skills taught in the introductory seminars, or should make arrangements to attend equivalent seminars at another institution, at their own expense. Students whose first language is not English are expected to have achieved a TOEFL score of at least 600, with a TWE (written score) of 4; or an IELTS score of at least 7+.
