PhD fellowships at the Schools of Arts

The PhD candidate is an artist or a designer and holds a relevant Master’s degree (or equally) in the study areas of Music, Performing Arts or Fine Arts. Applicants are expected to conduct research that explores issues or methodologies situated in or proceeding from their own artistic or design practice, with due sense of discursivity.

The PhD proposal should correspond to ARIA’s vision. An artistic entrance exam may be organised during the application procedure

For practical information about how PhD programmes are organised at ARIA, please consult the roadmap.

Doing a PhD with external funding

Besides the remunerated PhD fellowships, at the Royal Conservatoire Antwerp there is also the option of doing a PhD relying on external funding. In that case, your application is not in response to the call above but you do apply with the same form and follow the same timeline before the same deadline. The Schools of Arts may decide to limit the number of externally funded PhD places available. Find out what the options are before you begin.

Please apply using the PhD Fellowship Application Form. 
The form must be sent to the head of research Kevin Voets, kevin.voets@ap.be
