A PhD research scholarship including stipend and tuition fee costs is 
offered within the School of Arts and Institute of Creative 
Technologies. It is available to UK or EU students who are suitably 
qualified and have outstanding potential as researchers.

In offering this scholarship the University aims to further develop its 
proven research strengths in Digital Performance. It is an excellent 
opportunity for a candidate of exceptional promise to contribute to a 
stimulating, world-class research environment.

This is a frontier research project that will investigate the role of 
digital performance creativity (practice, technologies and 
story-telling) in pre-HE Performing Arts Education (BTEC, GCSE), with 
the intention of finding solutions that can re-dress the national 
shortfall in performing arts students entering HE with digital 
performance capabilities and openness. The aim of this research project 
is to seek to understand how creative digital technology can enhance 
learning in pre-HE performing arts education. The projected objectives 
might therefore be to define the pedagogic context and rationale for 
this field*; *develop technological tools and learning resources; 
analyse engagement learning, human-computer interaction and creative 
cognition in the context of this project; and/ or develop the groundwork 
for the beta design of a live-coding software environment for this sector.
