The Art Department at Goldsmiths, University of London, is pleased to invite applications for its world leading Art Research MPhil/PhD programme for September 2024 entry.

In order to be considered for CHASE funding, applications need to be submitted to the department by November 20 2023. There will an additional round for applications from self-funded students in spring 2024, dates to be confirmed. For details on both rounds and the application process, please consult the “How To Apply“ section on our webpage.

For 2024 entry and in addition to the general applications rounds, we are delighted to also invite applications from outstanding practitioners for a fully funded CHASE Collaborative Doctoral Award on “The Four-Plus Dimensional Materialities of the Choreographic”, which will be supported by CHOREOGRAPHIC in Art at Goldsmiths and the new Rose Choreographic School at Sadler’s Wells East. Please check our webpage for full details of this exciting opportunity.

Our programme supports innovative art research in Fine Art, Curating, Art Writing and across disciplines at the highest level of ambitious speculation and rigorous experimentation. We welcome proposals for research in any area of Fine Art, Curating and Art Writing and will give priority to proposals for research within the areas of interest of our faculty in the Department of Art so we can best support projects. We also support inter-departmental supervision to allow for access to the broad range of outstanding research expertise and supervisory experience Goldsmiths has to offer across disciplines. 

Research degrees on the programme have two interconnected elements: the research work that you carry out individually with support from your supervisory team, and a programme of installations, workshops and seminars which bring you into dynamic dialogue with other research students and a wider community inside and outside Goldsmiths. Beyond this, research degrees are further supported by courses and professional development provided by the Graduate School coordinating postgraduate research across College. 

Recent and upcoming visiting faculty on the programme include Filipa César, Kent Chan, Tyler Coburn, Revital Cohen and Tuur van Balen, Mark Dery, keyon gaskin, Martin Hargreaves, Onyeka Igwe, Raimundas Malasauskas, Francesco Manacorda, Olivier Marboeuf, Harun Morrison, Dorothee Richter, SERAFINE1369, Noémie Solomon, Janet Toro, Pieternel Vermoortel, and many others.

For production, the Department of Art has eleven specialist Art Practice Areas providing expert support for a wide variety of processes that complement and extend traditional disciplines, from metalwork, casting and woodwork through ceramics, textiles and print to photography, 3D printing, graphics, video editing, animation and 3D modelling.Full time students have access to studio space, and all MPhil/PhD students may make use of bookable spaces subject to availability; regularly exhibiting practice-based work is enabled through our programme of installations that function as a means of public engagement with research projects. 

The programme and the department at large also support research clusters on the CHOREOGRAPHICFeminist Duration and Animate Assembly, among others, and champion the Generation Delta project to improve access to postgradute research and careers for BAME women.

If you have specific questions about the programme, its scope and ambitions, or if you need to find out more about our processes, please contact the Programme Director Dr Edgar Schmitz on e.schmitz [​at​] or pre-application advisor Prof Michael Newman on m.newman [​at​]
