Applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Programme: All candidates must hold a conditional or unconditional offer onto one of our Doctoral programmes (PhD in Accounting, PhD in Finance or PhD in Management, including the Professional Pathway) and expect to join in September 2021. While you can be awaiting an application outcome when applying for this scholarship only those with an offer can be considered. Therefore, please ensure all necessary documents have been uploaded to your programme application before the scholarship deadline.
- Academic Standing: This normally requires a minimum qualification (or expected qualification if you are a current Master’s student) of above-average academic achievement, typically 65% or above overall at the Master’s level, with a distinction-level dissertation.
- English Competency: You must meet the English requirements for the PhD in Management, PhD in Accounting, or PhD in Finance. The most commonly approved certificate is an IELTS, for which the minimum accepted score is 7.0 overall with at least 6.0 in each section.
Please note that we will not generally consider candidates who have already obtained a PhD or equivalent qualification.
Other factors such as financial status and nationality are not taken into account. We aim to attract the greatest diversity of applications to this scheme and will ensure that recruitment processes are robust and unbiased so that traditionally underrepresented groups, including those from a minority background, and those from the most deprived communities in Scotland and the rest of the world are treated fairly.
To be considered, candidates must submit both a programme application and a scholarship application using the University’s online application system. To access the scholarship application you must first complete your programme application.
