Master's programmes at Kent Business School are driven by international research and relevance.
At Kent Business School the research degree programme provides exceptional students with a dynamic research culture, supervision from our community of over 60 research active academic staff, high quality resources and excellent research training.
We offer the following subject specialisms:
- Industrial Relations
- Management Science
- Operational Research
Our PhD students all receive a dedicated office space with either a laptop or PC, conference funding, formal research methods training and full access to the facilities of the Graduate School.
We also offer a range of PhD scholarship packages for outstanding candidates. All scholarship candidates must hold a first class honours degree (if still completing their master's programme) or a master's degree with Distinction in a relevant subject and a good standard of written or spoken English (IELTS 7 or equivalent).
University of Kent PhD scholarships are based on a three year Graduate Teaching Assistantship that includes financial support in return for part-time teaching. This covers tuition fees at the UK/EU rate (and some specific scholarships may include international fees) plus a combined salary and maintenance grant at the full UK Research Council rate.
Applications from self-funded students are also welcome and the minimum entry requirement is a Merit at master’s level in a relevant subject as well as our English language requirements.
Entry to the Kent Business School PhD programme is in September (application deadline 30 June) or January (deadline 31 October) each year.
