Course summary

The Westminster School of Arts is home to the Centre for Research and Education in Art and Media (CREAM), one of the most successful and highly rated Arts research centres in the UK. In the Research Exercise Framework 2014 CREAM achieved the highest ranking of any institution for a broad range of art and design research, with 45% of its research judged to be ‘world-leading’ and 63% deemed to be ‘world-leading’ in its impact. CREAM has a portfolio of research across the disciplines of ceramics, visual arts, photography, film, experimental media, music and fashion. CREAM has 30 researchers and over 50 PhD students and is London’s leading research centre in visual and media arts, design and music and one of the top 6 such centres in the UK. Approximately half of CREAM PhD students are undertaking practice-based degrees. As a CREAM doctoral researcher, you will join and participate in a lively programme of seminars and visiting speakers, ground-breaking conferences and symposia in collaboration with other institutions. CREAM has been a key participant in debates on practice-based research in audio-visual media and was a founding member of the AHRC-funded initiative, AVPhD.
