Research Overview » Switzerland
Switzerland does not allow art academies to grant doctoral degrees, but the Zurich University of the Arts runs several PhD programmes in partnerships with University of Art & Design Linz (Interface culture), University of Vienna (Scenography), and University of Plymouth (“Z-Node” of the Planetary Collegium, Plymouth). The master’s programme Y at Bern University of the Arts receives funding from the Swiss Research Council.
In 2009, the Rector's Conference of Swiss Universities of Applied Sciences publushed the report Forschung Schweizer Kunsthochschulen 2008, which gave priority to developing and consolidating Master's courses over establishing independent PhDs or doctoral programmes.
