The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna offers four doctoral programs: the philosophical doctorate, the technical doctorate (in Architecture), the scientific doctorate (natural sciences) and the PhD in Practice program. The latter was established in 2010 as a structured doctoral program in the field of arts based research. In 2015, the legal framework for a purely artistic doctorate study was created in the Austrian University Act. At present, the Academy of Fine Arts does not offer a purely artistic doctorate.
