PhDArts: Does Research Produce Art?

PhDArts offers an international, high-level doctoral programme in visual arts and design. Its goal is to stimulate and facilitate artist-researchers and to provide a suitable research environment. PhDArts is a collaboration between the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague.

The doctoral study programme consists of research and training and allows doctoral students to develop their artistic qualities, broaden their academic knowledge, expand their methodological skills and integrate all those elements in order to be able to function as independent artist researchers. Besides the joint curriculum, the doctoral programme includes individual research supervision. Students will be awarded the doctoral title.

Prospective PhD candidates can submit an application to the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts. Applicants must have a Master's of Arts Degree or proof of study at a comparable level. The final decision on admission rests with the Leiden University, which will also award the PhD. Applicants must put together a research dossier for their entrance exam. A form for this is provided on the website www.phdarts.eu
