The award of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) is the highest degree on offer at university. So, what’s involved in getting that coveted arts PhD and how do you apply?

Gaining a PhD immediately establishes you as a leader in your field and can be a big career boost. It gives you the opportunity to publish papers and speak at conferences, nationally and internationally, raising your profile across the sector. And a doctorate is almost a basic requirement if you want to pursue a career as an arts academic.
