Cardiff Business School is ranked 6th in the UK for the quality of its research in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF) and is one of only two business schools in the UK to be ranked in the top ten in each of the Government’s five assessment exercises since 1992.

Cardiff Business School has an international faculty of world-leading scholars and its research reputation has helped it become an attractive centre of scholarship for colleagues from the UK and beyond.

The School also has a strong and active PhD programme, with 150 PhD students studying at the School at any one time. A substantial proportion of these students are funded by scholarships obtained from funding bodies including the ESRC, EPSRC and a number of private sector organisations.

This studentships is an ‘open’ award. You should consider approaching a potential supervisor before submitting your application to confirm that there is appropriate supervisory capacity within the University and to discuss your draft application.
