See also entry requirements and how to apply. A full-time PhD usually takes up to three years. To be awarded a PhD, your research will need to of a suitable standard and your findings set out in an appropriately detailed thesis. Your thesis is then submitted for formal assessment by academic referees. The final hurdle in the process is the viva during which you will be questioned in depth about your research by a panel comprising senior academics from Brunel and other universities.
As a PhD student within Brunel Business School you will be supervised by two members of academic staff working in the area you are researching. You will have regular meetings with your supervisors to discuss your progress and to receive and seek guidance.
