Leadership and Management PhD - 2018 Entry

Entry Year
2018

Duration
Full time 36 Month(s)

Course Overview

Our research is characterised by its criticality, reflexivity and the integration of theory with practice, and by a desire to help shape the world in which we live.

Given the individualised nature of research and the importance of cross-disciplinary perspectives, we normally allocate each student two supervisors. PhD study involves a large component of self-directed study but in the first year of the programme you will attend a series of taught courses and seminars to ensure you have a rigorous foundation in various methodologies and approaches to research. Special PhD workshops, attended by the Department’s full- and part-time students, provide another important way of taking your ideas forward.

Research in the Department of Leadership and Learning focuses on five broad areas: critical leadership studies and follower dynamics; management learning and action research; international management and cross-cultural studies; sociologies of work and gender studies; and human resource management and organisational behaviour. In our work, we engage with contemporary debates in a wide range of disciplines, including organisation studies, education, cultural studies and sociology, to address key theoretical challenges as well as practitioner and policy issues in management.

    The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.

    If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.

    What are tuition fees for?

    Studying at a UK University means that you need to pay an annual fee for your tuition, which covers the costs associated with teaching, examinations, assessment and graduation.

    The fee that you will be charged depends on whether you are considered to be a UK, EU or overseas student. Visiting students will be charged a pro-rata fee for periods of study less than a year.

    Our annual tuition fee is set for a 12 month session, which usually runs from October to September the following year.

    How does Lancaster set overseas tuition fees?

    Overseas fees, alongside all other sources of income, allow the University to maintain its abilities across the range of activities and services. Each year the University's Finance Committee consider recommendations for increases to fees proposed for all categories of student and this takes into account a range of factors including projected cost inflation for the University, comparisons against other high-quality institutions and external financial factors such as projected exchange rate movements.

    What support is available towards tuition fees?

    Lancaster University's priority is to support every student in making the most of their education. Many of our students each year will be entitled to bursaries or scholarships to help with the cost of fees and/or living expenses. You can find out more about financial support, studentships, and awards for postgraduate study on our website.
