The Lincoln School of Film and Media offers a thriving and collaborative environment in which to undertake research at doctoral level, whether by thesis, practice portfolio plus commentary or by publication. As a researcher in the School, you will engage in a structured programme of training to develop the practical and critical skills necessary for your study. You will work with an experienced supervisory team who can offer support and guidance on your research and/or practice, funding opportunities, attending conferences, exhibitions and screening, and publishing or exhibiting your work in recognised journals and at events. You will benefit from the School’s research expertise in a variety of media and culture-related topics, including digital culture, media ethics, Latin American cinemas, technological change and media practice. You will join a vibrant research community where regular research seminars, such as the media research and the 21st Century Research Group seminars, will enable you to advance your understanding and skills.

Some programmes provide you with the opportunity to focus your study in a particular area through optional modules.

As the options often reflect staff research interests, they may alter over time due to staff availability.
A PhD is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic to a group of academics. You are also expected to demonstrate how your research findings have contributed to knowledge or developed existing theory or understanding.
Applicants require a Master's degree. Students whose first language is not English will require English Language IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element, or equivalent.
