Description

This is an innovative research programme exploring diverse exchanges between the creative arts, humanities and physical and social sciences. It combines research and creative practice to provide a critical environment within which students are encouraged to challenge existing disciplinary definitions. It focuses on interdisciplinary research methodologies and experiments with creativity across media and fields of knowledge, including new technologies when appropriate.Drawing on resources within Edinburgh College of Art and the wider University, this is a programme that is tailored to support each student's individual research project and can be used as preparation for doctoral study. A proposal accompanied by a portfolio should be submitted as part of the application process.Prospective students might have had experience as creative practitioners beginning to engage with interdisciplinary working methods or have completed study in a specific subject and now seek to apply that knowledge through creative practice. In special cases equivalent experience may be considered as an alternative for previous degree qualifications.

About this university

International students

International students arriving in Edinburgh can access various help and assistance to integrate with their new community. This starts at the International Student Centre where advice and assistance is available with fees and finance as well as legal matters such as immigration advice and visas. There is also a number of events organised by the ISC including weekly themed nights representing different countries and subsidized trips around the country. There are also campus wide events such as International Evening and the International Desserts Night to help students bring their own culture to others. The Edinburgh University Students Association (EUSA) is the combination of the unions and the Student Representative Council and has buildings around the campus including Teviot Row House, Potterrow, Kings Buildings House and the Pleasance. Teviot Row House has claims as the oldest purpose built student union building in the world. EUSA is responsible for some 250 societies for students to become involved with outside the classroom. Edinburgh itself is an important centre for the performing arts, particularly comedy, amateur and fringe theatre and numerous groups within the university are involved in this area. The Theatre Company was founded in 1896 and the Drama Society runs Bedlam Theatre, the oldest student run theatre in the UK. There is a weekly newspaper produced by students along with an independent publication and an alternative music radio station. In sports, there are 67 clubs ranging from rugby and football to judo and gliding.
