Art-related research for Ph.D. supported by UNSW Art & Design International Scholarship
Posted On June 20, 2017
As an Art student, you must have come across much distinct architecture, design and significant artworks notable in various countries of origin. Finishing your graduate studies in Art can render you unprepared for your next steps.
It is always best to find experience by working in galleries or museums so you’ll be hands-on art pieces and specialize in the field that you have worked on. It is, however, as good to pursue your doctorate degree, and where else can you consider doing so, but in the University of South Wales, Sydney!
Sydney is one of the famous cities in Australia, oftentimes mistaken as the capital of the continent. It is the home of the famous Sydney Opera House and is known for such an artistic structure, it is undeniable to assume that Australia must be home to various art opportunities and scholarships.
University of South Wales Art & Design was originally known as UNSW College of Fine Arts (COFA). It was also known as Sydney Technical College, the National Art School, Alexander Mackie College and the City Art Institute, all names that echo its specialization – programs pertaining to visual arts, design, and even robotics. Globally acclaimed, UNSW Art & Design is home to over faculty and students coming from over 50 countries.
The UNSW Art & Design International Scholarship Research awards up to $30,000 international postgraduate scholarships for projects that are related to the university’s research projects in coordination with the Australian Research Council grants. You will get to study and implement your research in Australia.
The scholarship amount is the same as the International Postgraduate Research Scholarship (IPRS) for the year (payment of tuition fees and an annual stipend) and the duration is up to 3 years depending on merit and satisfactory progress.
This scholarship is open to any international graduate (citizen of any overseas country excluding New Zealand and not normally living in Australia).
