An art school with an international outlook, part of UCL, London's global university, the Slade offers a supportive, stimulating and creative environment in which to develop your doctoral research. We welcome applications from students with a wide range of backgrounds, here in the UK and internationally. Our focus is on subject areas within the Slade (painting, sculpture and fine art media) and on interdisciplinary research between the Slade and the range of disciplines offered by UCL.
Our current  research themes include: painting, sculpture, fine-art media, material, word and image, landscape, performance and electronic media.
MPhil/PhD Programme
We offer a choice between the following three options within the PhD programme:

· Practice-led: a thesis of studio practice that makes an original contribution to knowledge plus a written report of 15,000-40,000 words (or 10,000-20,000 words for the MPhil).

· Practice-related: a written thesis of 60,000-80,000 words with studio practice that together make an original contribution to knowledge (or 35,000-45,000 words for the MPhil).

· Written thesis only
: a written thesis of 80,000-100,000 words that makes an original contribution to knowledge (or 50,000-60,000 words for the MPhil).

The MPhil/PhD programme has strong links to the taught programmes at the Slade and you will also have access to the School-wide lecture and visiting artists' programme. The Slade provides excellent workshop and research facilities.
