Postgraduate Degrees (MA & PhD) 

School of The Arts offers opportunities to embark on a journey for a MA or PhD by research. Supervision is available through full-time or part-time studies and can sometimes be provided via communication technology (skype). In recent years, School of The Arts has graduated many scholars who are now academics and practitioners in their respective fields. The postgraduate by research programme allows free space for the growth of the mind where intellectual, personal and even spiritual upgrading can be achieved. With this vision in mind, School of The Arts helps you develop your individual understanding through research and at the same time contribute new knowledge and scholarship in the field of creative arts. In addition to working with your supervisors, we also organise a series of research workshops, seminars, conferences and colloquiums throughout your studies to further enhance your learning experience with us.
