Candidates must specify which research group they wish to join on their application form. The research proposals submitted by applicants should fit at least one of the above centres/groups.
Queen Mary Studentships are open to suitably qualified candidates from the UK, EU and overseas for full-time study. The Studentships consist of the full cost of (home or overseas) fees and British Pound 15,786 a year for maintenance for 3 years. The School also provides all students with a British Pound 1000 research allowance for conference attendance and other research related expenses. Award holders will be expected to be resident in London during the 3 year period of the studentship.
To apply you will normally have a first degree with first class honours (or equivalent) and a Master's degree at distinction level, in business/management or a discipline related to your research topic. We do not normally accept an MBA. Relevant experience is also taken into account.
Applicants are required to have an IELTS overall score of 7 at the time of application. In some circumstances the requirement will be applied flexibly and applicants will be assessed on a case by case basis. For example if an applicant has performed to distinction level in a dissertation although they have a grade below that specified above or if an applicant has an excellent proposal and relevant work experience for a considerable period of time.
Our PhD programme is highly competitive and for research studentships all applicants will be judged according to the same criteria, namely: record of academic and/or professional achievement; quality of their research proposal; and compatibility with the theme of the studentship.
