An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in a relevant subject plus a master’s degree that has achieved a merit, or equivalent, is also normally expected. In addition to the academic qualifications, we also value relevant work experience. If you do not have a Master’s degree, you should complete the MA in Management and Business Studies (Research) before continuing onto the PhD track. If you have a Master’s degree that is not recognised by the ESRC as Research Master, you will be expected to complete a PG Certificate in Research Methods in your first year of the programme.
