Postgraduate Arts and Humanities Centre

The Centre provides taught and research students in Art, Design, Fashion, Humanities, Languages, Media and Social Science with the space, opportunities and training to explore:

    • Academic Progression
    • Application of practical and intellectual skills inside and outside the University
    • Share ideas with peers and explore cognate interests across disciplines 


In addition to traditional disciplinary approaches to postgraduate study across the Arts and Humanities, we encourage applications for multidisciplinary and/or collaborative projects with partners outside Higher Education from the public, cultural, design, media, and social sectors.

The two hubs within the Centre offer tailored opportunities that support Research and Taught students.

Research Hub

The Research Hub offers support to both existing and new Research Degree students through supervision from specialists in their chosen field and a Researcher Development Programme, that provides comprehensive research training, skills development and joint workshops.

Spread over the academic year the programme gives the opportunity for students to meet their peers, share ideas and explore cognate interests across the disciplines within the University and across the region, through events sponsored by the NWCDTP.

For those in the professional world or currently studying a taught Masters, the Hub offers support in the form of a pre-application online course, providing the necessary guidance for writing a research proposal.

We welcome research proposals with multidisciplinary perspectives drawn from the Centre’s broad subject base.

For more information, please contact Professor Jim Aulich, Head of the Postgraduate Arts and Humanities Centre.

Taught Hub

With an extensive porfolio of Master and Master of Fine Art routes on offer, taught students are part of a thriving community. In addition to the support of academic professionals, Masters’ students also have the support of a Student Experience Tutor who offers individually tailored non-academic support, advice and guidance on careers and employability skills, and academic progression.
