The study and qualification model consists of a combination of transdisciplinary, practice-oriented training and research-related courses, promoting practical acquisition of knowledge and experience. The study programme is the result of many years of experience at Hildesheim in the supervision of post-doctoral and PhD students, and is designed so that both interdisciplinary and subject-specific courses are offered. The form and closeness of supervision varies over the course of the PhD: to begin with, the focus is on the inter- and transdisciplinary positioning of the student’s own PhD project and engagement with the academic methods and issues specific to the training group, while nearer the completion of the PhD intensive collaboration with a supervisor becomes increasingly important.
In addition to the interdisciplinary meetings of all participants, the colloquia and the annual conference organised by the PhD students, both of which provide a forum for the interdisciplinary exchange of ideas, the study programme comprises three further levels. First, research participation in the semester-long collaborative project unique to Hildesheim (“Projektsemester”), which takes place every two years and in which aesthetic-practice projects are developed and enacted, underlines the relevance of the reciprocal relationship between academic reflection and aesthetic practice for the students’ own research projects. Second, close supervision in decentralised subject groups helps students focus on their own individual research perspective. Finally, e-learning facilities enable students to carry out work and research outside of Hildesheim as well. The programme is rounded off by the teaching of key skills for the students’ academic careers by supervising professors and lecturers, and accompanying reflection on and discussion of academic practice.
