LARC is home to more than sixty doctoral students. Under the supervision of our experienced and supportive staff they pursue a wide range of research topics across the creative arts. One of the most innovative features of the doctoral programme at Leeds Beckett University is that many students are working on PhDs where practice is the central part of their work. To see the topic areas covered for doctoral study within LARC please look at our staff Research Profiles where you will get a sense of the subjects where we can offer supervision.
