Royal Holloway, University of London
UK Upper Second Class Honours degree (2.1) or equivalent and a master's degree with Merit.
English language requirements IELTS 6.5 overall with 6.5 in writing no less than 6 in all other sub scores.
Applicants must also submit a high quality research proposal and personal statement.
We advise applicants to contact the department first to see if a relevant supervisor would be prepared to supervise their research.
Applicants who do not have the required level of understanding of management research and its methodologies, and applicants who do not have a masters degree, should note that most of the masters degrees offered by the School of Management have specialist research pathways which seek to develop such understanding within the context of a specific area of study.
All doctoral candidates are automatically registered as MPhil students during their first year: they are expected to produce a detailed literature review and formal research design to a good standard before they can upgrade to PhD status. Full-time students will be working on these aspects in Year 1 with a view to upgrading in Year 2. For full-time students, the second and third years are normally spent collecting data, conducting field research, analysing results and writing up. The PhD thesis is usually submitted at the end of the third year.
First year students complete assessments at the end of their compulsory research methods training.
As well as regular meetings with their Principal and Second Supervisors, all students attend semi-annual review meetings with PhD Directors, Principal and Second Supervisors throughout the three years of their registration. At these meetings, progress is discussed and advice for further work given.
At the beginning of the summer term, all students present their research at the School's annual PhD days, attended by doctoral students, members of staff and external advisers. Students are given extensive feedback on their work to date.
The PhD thesis is judged by internal and external examiners appointed by the College. The candidate is then invited to defend his/her thesis before these examiners.
