The brand-new PhD programme at the GSA is part of a faculty-wide PhD in Art & Design, offered throughout the eight departments of the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture (FADA). At present, there is very limited staff capacity to run the PhD. However, students interested in pursuing this option are asked to contact Prof Lesley Lokko by e-mail. 

PHD PROGRAMME
CONVENER: PROF LESLEY LOKKO

The PhD Programme at the GSA is part of the faculty-wide PhD in Art & Design, offered through all the eight departments of the Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture. Although this programme will not run in 2018, due to staffing capacity, students interested in applying in 2019 should note that we offer two different routes to a doctorate in architecture: either through the combination of designing and writing, where the thesis consists of a project and a text that share a research theme and a productive relationship, or through a more conventional text-based approach. In both cases, the thesis must be an original and creative piece of research into an area of a student's selection and definition. In the former, the 'project' component may be drawn, filmed, built or make use of appropriate media.
