CRiSAP emerged, as a research centre, from the practice based and theoretical concerns of the course teams in the Sound Arts and Design department at LCC. Our research has retained this strong connection with undergraduate and postgraduate teaching. We view teaching  as an important aspect in the development in our research and are excited to be able to share our concerns with students and early career researchers. 

PhD Study

We welcome applications for theoretical and practice-based PhDs  in any areas of sound arts. We aim to be  available for informal discussion with prospective applicants in advance of a formal application. 

For information about University of the Arts London full time or part time PhDs please see the University of the Arts London research degrees web pages or contact
