Summary

Strathclyde Business School is offering up to 15 PhD fee only awards. These will be competitively awarded to outstanding applicants for PhD study with a start date of 1 October 2023.  Applications are welcome in all of our subject areas but we particularly welcome applicants interested in any of our areas of research expertise. The awards will apply for each year of study, up to a maximum of 36 months of full-time study.

Eligibility

For entry on to our PhD programmes we normally look for a first-class or upper second-class UK Honours degree, or overseas equivalent, in a relevant business or social science related subject, as well as a master’s degree, or overseas equivalent, although there are often exceptions. When reviewing your academic achievements, we're particularly interested in grades which relate to independent research (for example, a research project or dissertation).

Strathclyde Business School is committed to supporting a diverse and inclusive postgraduate research population. We make decisions on entry by assessing the whole person and not relying solely on academic achievements. On that basis, please ensure that your application (via a statement in your CV) can evidence your resourcefulness, commitment and resilience as demonstrated by broader professional and life experiences. This evidence should be centred on your ability to undertake and complete a PhD and contribute to a positive PhD community.

If English isn't your first language, you'll need an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent with no individual element below 5.5.
