This programme is aimed at practitioners of architecture and other related spatial practices who would like to develop long-span practice-based research projects.

It will allow you to develop profound, rigorous and scholarly research and push forward and substantiate your own practice.

The programme is based around regular two-day seminars (10 per year), a series of longer meetings, plus trips throughout the world.

The seminars are organised as round table discussions of students’ projects.

Each seminar includes a visit by a cutting edge scholar or practitioner, and a common discussion of his/her work.

Find out more about our research degrees, including information about starting your research, upgrading to PhD registration, and submitting your thesis.
