Research: How to apply

The University of Roehampton Business School welcomes enquiries from well-qualified applicants who wish to pursue research studies leading to the award of a PhD. Our PhD programme is an opportunity to undertake a major piece of independent research under the supervision and guidance of an experienced supervisory team. We offer excellent doctoral research opportunities on a full or part-time basis and currently have a community of over twenty PhD students. Many of our research degree students are sponsored or have scholarships which involve them contributing to the teaching and supervision of students on taught degrees. Our students are fully integrated into the research environment of the School, and they enjoy the University‚Äôs exceptional research facilities.

We always ensure that we have a good fit between the interest of doctoral students and the staff who supervise their research. If you are interested in applying to us for a place on our PhD programme, please explore the research profiles of our staff and their publications. Do feel free to contact potential supervisors individually to discuss possible projects, as well as contacting the Research Degrees Convenor, Professor Elaine Harris.

Prior to making a formal application, we like to be able to give applicants advice about whether their proposed topic falls within our areas of research interest and expertise, and whether what they propose to undertake as their research study is sufficiently well-developed to enable us to proceed with a formal application. For further general information on Doctoral study, and guidance on making an application, please contact the Research Degrees Convenor.
