The Award
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 £16,296 a year for maintenance for 3 years. The School also provides all students with a £1,000 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.

Candidate Profile
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.

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.
