Taught programmes

Our courses are offered full-time taken in one year or part-time with the workload split over two years.

Research programmes (MPhil, MMus/PhD)

We welcome and encourage applications for postgraduate degrees by research. In addition to topics focusing on single research areas, we actively encourage interdisciplinary research that cuts across the spectrum of arts studies, or other intellectual disciplines in the Faculty of Arts and beyond. Joint supervision may be provided.

Research degrees can be taken in the following subjects:

Research groups

See our school research groups for more information on how our research activity is focused within the School of Arts.

Faculty support

We foster a vibrant postgraduate community across the Faculty of Arts, providing you with dedicated support when you need it.

School of Arts subjects are eligible for funding from the AHRC South West and Wales Doctoral Training Partnership. The Faculty of Arts also offers funding opportunities for taught and research programmes.

I think that Bristol is a top university in terms of research, and I think students appreciate that they are learning from accomplished researchers and scholars, people who are dedicated to advancing knowledge and understanding in the world.
