Deadline: 18 February 2013
Social Sciences Graduate School Research PhD Studentships are offered to prospective candidates from the academic year 2013/14.
The Studentships will be available under the Scheme to applicants who, in their research proposal, can clearly demonstrate academic excellence in areas relevant to the strategic interests of the Norwich Business School.
Please see our Business Management Research Areas andÂ Academic Profiles for more details, and for the research interests of individual members of staff.
The Studentships cover tuition fees (UK/EU rates), a tax-free maintenance grant (currently Â£13,590 per year), and a research training support grant. International students are welcome to apply but must be able to pay the difference between UK/EU fees and international fees. However in some limited cases the School may consider providing âtop upâ grants covering the international component of tuition fees if a studentâs research topic is closely aligned to the strategic interests of the School. Please be aware that some studentships may be awarded on the basis that the recipient will be required to engage in School activities including teaching and teaching support. This is subject to the University regulation stating that full time Postgraduate Research (PGR) students must not complete more than 180 hours employment per academic year and any restrictions on employment in the terms of the studentâs visa.
Applicants are invited from suitably qualified graduates. Candidates should hold, or expect to hold, a minimum of at least a 2.1 degree and preferably a Research Masters degree or equivalent. Candidates may be asked to participate in an interview, which could take place via telephone or Skype as part of the selection process. EU and International applicants may be required to provide evidence of competence in the English Language.
To be considered for this award, you should make an application for admission to an MPhil/PhD in the normal manner, but you should indicate the intention to be considered for an open studentship under the Postgraduate Studentships Scheme. Please contact either, the postgraduate admissions tutor, Dr Hing Kai Chan, or your potential supervisor to discuss and develop the best possible proposal and application.
