If English is not their 1st language they must also show evidence of attaining standards in English. The taught component of these programmes comprise a seminar series and discipline-based courses in research or subject specific courses, as appropriate for the individual student, delivered as part of the Graduate Business School taught programmes.
Funding is available for researchers to support them during their period of study. Dedicated to creating a community of research excellence, acheivement, and innovation, we have a funding database of scholarships designed to fund your studies. External sources of funding are also available; these are best approached once you identify a supervisor for the project you wish to carry out.
