PhD Programme in Visual Art and Design

Call for Applications

PhDArts, a collaboration between the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts and the Royal Academy of Art (KABK) in The Hague, offers an international, high-level doctorate in art and design. Each doctoral course of study comprises individual research and participation in the doctoral study programme. Students will be awarded the doctoral title.

Research in and through art is an inseparable part of the artistic or design practice of the researcher. Consequently, research in art (as opposed to research about art, such as art history) does not have a set goal or expected result, and neither are there predetermined general procedures. The outcome of the research is completely open. This openness is a condition for conducting research in art and design. 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.

Prospective PhD candidates can submit an application to the Leiden University Academy of Creative and Performing Arts. Application deadlines are 1 April 2012 or 1 October 2012. The application procedure and form can be found at www.phdarts.eu.
