The Academy of Fine Arts Vienna offers four doctoral programs: the philosophical doctorate (Dr. phil.), the technical doctorate (in Architecture) (Dr. techn.), the scientific doctorate (natural sciences) (Dr. rer. nat.)and the PhD in Practice program (PhD). 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.
