They work closely with their supervisors and belong to a welcoming community of postgraduates and academic staff. They take part in a wide range of both formal and social activities designed to develop and extend their research skills.

A range of approaches
Our postgraduate researchers work on a wide variety of challenging projects. We offer specialist supervision in the discrete areas of film, theatre and television research. We also support a variety of inter-disciplinary projects. The department has a strong tradition of enabling practice as research. This is recognized internationally as one of its chief strengths. We welcome students from a range of academic and practical backgrounds who conduct work in this mode.
