The University of Wolverhampton’s Centre for Art and Design Research and Experimentation (CADRE) is offering two full time PhD studentships. Bursaries are for three years at £13,500 per year with full tuition fee remittance. Bursary students will be expected to be working ‘in residence’ at the University of Wolverhampton. Fee remittance will be at the UK/EU rate, International students are welcome to apply but will need to fund the balance.

We are interested in PhD studentship proposals which are practice-led and theory-based. Potential students are encouraged to contact the following CADRE research supervisors.
