PhD - Film Studies (Practice by Research), MA - Film Studies (Practice by Research)
Postgraduate students are supervised via a research team through regular meetings. Research supervision draws on wide staff interests in North American, European, and Latin American cinemas, offering opportunities to study projects based in aesthetic, conceptual and historical perspectives on film and digital media, as well as practice by research. For further details, see staff research interests.
In addition, research students participate in a series of regular events. These include work-inprogress seminars and professional development workshops, both of which are subject specific. Research students are also able to enrol on the Graduate School's Transferable Skills Training Programme. Our research students also actively participate in the Film Research Seminar, which brings leading scholars and practitioners to Kent. We also hold an annual postgraduate presentation day.
The University of Kent was founded in 1965 and since then has achieved prominence as one of Britain's most innovative and enterprising universities. Our students come from many different backgrounds (there are over 110 nationalities represented at Kent) giving a rich cultural variety on campus. Students come from Hong Kong, Thailand, Japan, the United States, Nigeria and Europe as well as from the UK.
