The PhD in Film & Visual Culture is a three-year degree. Applicants must provide a detailed research proposal and two academic references from their most recent academic institution. We invite potential candidates to explore the research interests of affiliated GWW staff members. We offer the option of co-supervision with a broad range of neighbouring disciplines. Researchers may also wish to draw upon the library’s special collections.
Applicants can also pursue a practice-based PhD in Film & Visual Culture. This degree is tailored to students wishing to complete a substantial work of film practice, which may constitute for example a single film or series of films, together with a written thesis of a minimum length of 50,000 words. PhD students engaged in research involving video production have the use of our Media Lab, with its production and post-production facilities. Those interested in the possibility of pursuing research in an area of practice can contact Professor Alan Marcus.
