PhD Studentships for 2023 at Kingston University London 

The Department of Performing Arts at Kingston University London is delighted to invite expressions of interest from strong Music researchers to join our PhD Programme from October 2023.


Several fully-funded and part-funded studentships are available on a competitive basis to undertake doctoral study (including practice-based) in a range of areas.


We encourage applications from Global Majority students: as well as ringfencing a number of studentships, we are also offering a programme of support and mentoring during the application process.


At least one of the fully-funded PhD studentships listed above will be awarded to a Kingston Alumni who has completed an undergraduate and/or masters level degree course at Kingston University or its predecessor institutions.


Deadline for applications: 8 March 2023
