Practice-Based PhD Programme


The Practice-based PhD Programme consists of a core curriculum of six Skills Workshops as well as a Seminar, Lectures and an annual Student-Led Conference. The aim of the programme is to bring together researchers from across different disciplines, opening up a space to share and present work as a community of practice and learning.

Originally developed for practice-based doctoral students in the arts at Royal Holloway, this year the programme extends to include all practice-based research students and academics across the AHRC TECHNE Doctoral Training Partnership. This includes Royal Holloway, Brighton, Kingston, Roehampton, Surrey, Royal College of Art and University of Arts London.

All are welcome! Please see specific details about this year's activities below, including information on how to get involved.

The Programme Director is Dr Libby Worth

Skills workshops

Co-presented by Royal Holloway academics from arts departments and/or another TECHNE institution, a series of Skills Workshops run across Terms 1 & 2. All workshops are held in Central London.

Topics covered in Term 1 are both common and central to all academic research, and here we look at these specifically in relation to practice-based research. In Term 2 we look at key elements of practice-based research, continuing to situating it within the wider academic context while exploring its uniqueness and transformative potential.

Students interested in attending any of the the Skills Workshops should email  pgrtraining@royalholloway.ac.uk, including your:
