We provide you with an outstanding research environment, conducive to the production of world-class research and to the education of academics who consistently take up faculty positions in a range of universities and research roles in public and private institutions. The programme emphasises:
• Formal research training (PhD/Masters level courses in year 1)
• Flexibility to meet individual needs
• Student-staff interaction
• Timely completion of the degree
As part of your personal development, you will be encouraged to engage in teaching (formal training also provided), research activities, conferences and events within the Business School and around the world.
The 6 fully funded PhD scholarships are awarded based on the quality of your research proposal, outstanding academic merit and two reference letters (preferably from academics). The closing date for funding applications is 31 May 2019.
You should have obtained a Masters degree at distinction or merit level in a relevant area from an internationally recognised university. Relevant research and/or industry experience may be considered for those with exceptional strengths.
As part of the application process, you will also be asked to submit a research proposal. Prior to your submission, you may wish to discuss your proposal with an individual faculty member working in the area. Please avoid contacting multiple faculty members.
