About Visual Culture at University of Nottingham

The Department of History of Art welcomes applications for both full-and part-time MPhil/PhD study in Art History, Visual Culture, or a related subject.

MPhil

The MPhil requires one year of full-time study (minimum of two years part-time). Students research their chosen topic and write a dissertation of at least 60,000 words. Supervisions are held at a minimum of 1 hour three times each term, approximately every three weeks. The MPhil is an internationally recognised research degree.

It is common for students admitted into a MPhil to transfer onto the PhD upon successful completion of the first year of study (subject to satisfactory progress).

PhD
