PhD studentships in Design

Design Star

Future design leaders: we are launching a new competition for Design Star studentships for 2018/19 entry. Previous applicants are welcome to reapply, taking account of feedback from their supervisors.

The AHRC Design Star Centre for Doctoral Training aims to develop research leaders of the future who are equipped to make a difference to contemporary social concerns, knowledge production and creative practices. This requires an approach to research training that places diversity and interdisciplinarity at its core.

Its spread of design disciplines is linked by a common approach to design that encourages the integration of history, theory and engagement.

The consortium brings together leading design departments at the University of Brighton; Goldsmiths, University of London; Loughborough University; The Open University; and the University of Reading.

Each represents a distinctive, engaged, and interdisciplinary perspective on design. Each institution is broad-based, and recognised for the high quality of its design research through both excellent performance in research assessment exercises, scholarly engagement with audiences and publics, and by demand from prospective high-calibre PhD students.

If you wish to apply have a look at the Design Star website []
