PhD Culture and Heritage Management

University of Lincoln

As a doctoral student, you will pursue original research in the fields of culture and heritage management, with the goal of making a significant contribution to knowledge in, and understanding of, this field.

As a postgraduate researcher you will become an integral part of our research community, working with leading academics whose research has gone on to impact cultural heritage policy and practice on an international scale. There is an emphasis on your own independent critical investigation, supervised by an experienced team of academics. You will benefit from participation in the Visitor Economy Research Group and the Heritage and Archives Network at the University.

You will have access to a structured programme of training supported by our Doctoral School. This aims to assist you in the development of the practical and critical skills which are necessary for this programme and are transferable to your career. There may also be opportunities to participate in undergraduate teaching following relevant training. Normally, PhD students register for an MPhil, and after two terms are expected to transfer to the PhD programme. This transfer requires the production of a detailed research proposal, which the candidate will be expected to defend at a transfer viva. The formal transfer is subject to approval by the University's Research Committees. The University of Lincoln is part of the Northern Advanced Research Training Initiative (NARTI), a network of research-led universities providing specialist advanced training through the facilitation of events, retreats, and conferences to establish networks to share cross-regional expertise.

Throughout the research degree, students are encouraged to take part in all activities associated with developing a research career. The Researcher Development Programme from the Doctoral School considers career development pathways and students are encouraged to maintain training and development logs throughout their studies.In some cases students will have the opportunity to support undergraduate students and experience seminar teaching. To support this, the University of Lincoln offers a range of teaching and learning activities and courses, and postgraduate students involved in teaching are encouraged to actively to take up these opportunities for development.
