Course Summary

Course Summary

UEL’s School of Arts and Digital Industries (ADI) will push you to the limit - but you’ll be supported all the way. ADI’s research students and staff are actively researching and creating in areas from film studies to cultural theory, the performing arts, and art and design.

Many members of our large research community – supervisors, teachers, writers, academics and cultural practitioners – are creating internationally significant work, such as two-time Turner Prize nominee and Visiting UEL Research Professor Richard Wilson.

If you're interested in applying for an Excellence Scholarship please look at the Research Centres that reflect the diverse research activity in the school.

Your Research Proposal

Research proposals give us a better understanding of the area you want to study for an MPhil and PhD via MPhil course.

You don’t have to follow a predetermined structure when writing your proposal, but it’s a good idea to include a title that describes the aims and scope of your research, and information on how your ideas fit in with the research interests of UEL.

Other important elements include: relevant academic literature, how your research will advance knowledge in this area, and a possible methodology. You should also include a timescale for your research.
