The Open University Business School invites applications for full-time PhD studentships starting in October 2016.

We are looking for highly motivated candidates who have a good honours degree at a minimum of 2:1 or equivalent in a related subject, plus around 120 credits of advanced research methods skills or ideally a Masters in research methods.

We must also receive a completed application form, copies of relevant degree certificates and transcripts and a copy of your SELTS test results (if applicable), before we can consider your application.
