The Academy offers the research postgraduate programmes leading to the Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees. Research students are fully funded. As well as individual supervision, the programmes provide opportunities for them to undertake fully mentored teaching, participate in and attend conferences, and take relevant skills development courses. The University provides students with a number of other funding opportunities to enable travel to archives and other activities. Our current MPhil and PhD students are an international group pioneering visual arts research.
