Research and PhD in Accounting and Finance
Lancaster University, UK

Scholarship / Financial aid: scholarships cover full fees and a maintenance allowance of at least 14,000 per year

Date: 2015 intake

Deadline: 16th January 2015

Open to: applicants with a relevant Masters degree in finance, accounting or a cognate subject area

Announcement follows

Our admissions criteria for the Department are as follows:

Applicants are normally expected to hold a relevant Masters degree in finance, accounting or a cognate subject area. We will usually require a performance at distinction level at Masters degree, typically averaging above 70% overall, which may also be required in a suitable dissertation element.
Alternatively, for students not already holding/studying towards a suitable Masters degree, our MSc programmes provide a foundation for PhD study. The Department requires distinction-level performance, both overall and for the dissertation element.
Applicants are advised that a GMAT score may be required.
Our English language requirements (where required) are for IELTS at 7.0.
We are looking for evidence of creativity and potential to develop a successful career as an academic researcher. Therefore, we will usually aim to conduct an interview (which may be conducted via telephone or video-link) with suitable applicants.

There are a number of scholarships open to our PhD applicants, including ESRC scholarships through the North West Doctoral Training Centre, which is the largest centre in England for social science postgraduate training, Management School and Departmental scholarships. These scholarships typically cover full fees and a maintenance allowance of at least 14,000 per year, with enhanced bursaries up to 25,000 available for outstanding applicants.

Our research students are encouraged and supported to gain classroom experience, in preparation for possible academic careers. Opportunities also arise regularly to work as part-time research assistants on faculty members' research projects.

All students who receive funding from the Management School or the Department will be required to undertake such work, according to the amount of funding they receive. However, we also encourage all other students to take on occasional teaching and/or research assistantship duties on a paid basis, to expand their own experiences in readiness for graduation.

After graduation, most of our students go on to assume faculty positions at universities all over the world. A smaller number find employment in the public or private sector. All in all, our PhD programme is perfectly tailored for aspiring academics.

Our website provides more details of our programmes, our faculty and their research expertise, the application procedure as well as funding opportunities. You can also contact our PhD programme secretary, Carole Holroyd, in the Department of Accounting and Finance.

Application deadline

Applications are now open. You should apply as soon as possible. Please apply before 16th January 2015 if you wish to be considered for an ESRC scholarship from the NWDTC. Otherwise, please apply before 30th June 2015 for October 2015 entry.

While we attempt to offer comprehensive, up-to-date information, you may have additional questions or concerns. If so, please contact us directly for further advice.
