The University of the Arts Helsinki consists of three academies and provides an inspiring ground for learning, research, and artistic activity.

Academy of Fine Arts 
Application period: September 1–October 14, 2016
Academy of Fine Arts will admit a maximum of five new students to the Doctoral Studies Programme for studies starting in autumn 2017.

Doctoral studies pursued at the Academy of Fine Arts, University of the Arts Helsinki provide the means and opportunity to engage in the independent and creative activity of artistic research. Artistic research is multidisciplinary research grounded in the artists and their art. The doctoral programme at the Academy produces artist-researchers specialised in fine art.

The doctoral thesis in fine art can include art exhibitions, exhibition curating, individual artworks, artistic processes, experimental arrangements and their articulation, conceptualisation and theorisation. Typically a doctoral thesis consists of one or several visual art components (a maximum total of 140 ECTS) and a written component (30–170 ECTS). In addition, the thesis must be documented and electronically archivable. The artistic components are public artistic research findings. The written component runs parallel to the visual art components and justifies the research approach and goals in relation to other research and practices within the field. On a discretionary basis the dissertation can also consist exclusively of a written study.

Doctoral students are expected to seek funding for their research from relevant bodies.
