You can view the different areas of supervision on the course page on our website, together with contact details for academic staff. Research degrees are best planned by individual discussion, so if you have a particular subject area in mind, please contact a staff member working in your area of interest in the first instance.
Please also refer to our six step process on applying for PhD, MA by Research and MRes opportunities for Arts subject areas, which includes detailed advice on research proposals and how to write them.

Hello again! Thank you for answering my prveious questions. I am an Erasmus student going on exchange for 1 semester. I have been accepted by the Art History, Film and Visual Studies department. In order to sign the Learning Agreement from the Erasmus grant application, I am required to give the information of my contact person at University of Birmingham.How or when will I know who my contact person from the department is? The same goes for the (preliminary) module selection I must fill in the Learning Agreement — the offer letter I received mentioned that the department would contact me — do you have any indication of within what timeframe I will be contacted? Thank you!
Hi Johanna. As I work in the Postgraduate Recruitment Team, I’m not aware of these arrangments for incoming Erasmus Students. I would advise you to get in to contact with our Study Abroad Team who manage our incoming and outgoing Erasmus and Study Abroad students. Thank you
Hello! What do you think is a realistic budget for private accommodation in Birmingham?
Hi Johanna. There is a wide range of private accommodation available in Birmingham, as it is the second largest city after London. However, as a guide a room in a shared private house might cost between £350 – £450 per month. Be careful to check whether the price includes utility bills and internet or whether these costs will be charged in addition.
