The PhD Museum Practice is one of a suite of professional practice-focused Doctorates overseen by the University's Institute for Cultural Practices that aim to engage experienced professionals in advanced research. It takes explicit account of the professional practice-base of the student and integrates this as a central knowledge base for the research project. The programme aims to support the development of dynamic knowledge outcomes that can have an impact across academic and non-academic contexts.
The programme supports the development of reflective practice that can respond to and influence the complex unpredictable and shifting social and cultural contexts within which museums and their staff operate. The programme introduces students to a range of dynamic and challenging concepts and methods with which to reflect critically and constructively on their professional practice.
For entry in the academic year beginning September 2019, the tuition fees are as follows:
UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
International students (per annum): £18,500
UK/EU students (per annum): TBA
Please note for the majority of projects where experimentation requires further resource: higher fee bands (where quoted) will be charged rather than the base rate for supervision, administration and computational costs. The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive and, therefore, you will not be required to pay any additional bench fees or administration costs.
All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of the course for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your project.
The School offers a limited number of bursaries and studentships on a competitive basis, details of which can be found via the links below.
