Postgraduate research

Emerita Professor Harriet Edquist coordinates its expanding research program and supervises a number of doctoral candidates in practice-based research and thesis mode.

Practice Research Symposium (PRS) Series

Six times a year, the postgraduate cohort from the School of Architecture and Design come together to be part of a Practice Research Symposium (PRS). In this they engage in a weekend of discourse. Each candidate’s presentation at the PRS paces their research and allows public consideration of the nature of the mastery that their peers have recognised in their work.
