Lecturer in Research Practice

The PGR Studio seeks to promote an experimental, creative and practice-based space that resonates across all the academic Schools and disciplines in ADM. A studio can be an artists’ studio, a design studio, a recording studio, a rehearsal studio or a writing studio.

The PGR Studio aims to enhance the Arts, Design & Media PGR research community and student experience through supporting routes into and out of PhDs through professional and career development within and beyond Higher Education as well as the transition throughout PhD study. We run workshops, training, social events and other activities in partnership with our PGRs for our PGRs.
