Postgraduate Research Studentship, University of Bedfordshire

In order to strengthen the professional experience of our students, we wish to support a Master of Research Bursary in order to develop an annual festival for new and young practitioners in all aspects of Media, Art and Design.

The festival will act as a showcase for students and practitioners, be an exemplar for young people and engender an enthusiasm and vigor for this area of study.

The principal responsibility of the bursary holder will be to organize the festival in such a way as to promote these goals and seek sustainable funding.

They will be expected to:

• work in conjunction with the staff and students of the School of Media, Art and Design to organize and promote the festival

• Work in conjunction with other members of the School of Media Art and Design to organize and draft applications to arts and media funding bodies to support the festival.

• Complete a Master of research in an agreed relevant topic

Applicants may already have some experience of organising festivals, community arts or workshops and wish to use this exciting opportunity to gain experience in arts administration

The University has scored consistently high ratings in teaching assessments carried out since 1995 by the Quality Assurance Agency.

We work closely with employers and these links with industry are reflected in the research profile of the institution.
