Course Overview

A PhD in business or management is highly valued in many professions as well as an increasingly key qualification for those wishing to pursue an academic career in management studies. It can provide a springboard into the next level of career opportunities. If you’re contemplating this path, why not choose to study with the UK’s most research-intensive business school, according to the latest Research Excellence Framework?

Research in the Department of Organisation, Work and Technology sets the agenda for debate in key issues such as human resource management and employment relations; ethics, sustainability and management; information, technology and society; management, organisations and society; and leadership organisations and society.

Staff in the department are drawn from a range of backgrounds including human geography, human resource management, organisation studies, history, philosophy, and sociology. Our interdisciplinary community brings humanities and wider social science perspectives into management research – something that’s widely acknowledged as crucial in reshaping management research and education.

During your PhD, you will be part of a fantastic research environment including our extensive library facilities and electronic resources. We also run a strong seminar series and workshops to encourage collaboration and cross-fertilization of ideas. You will be able to access advanced research training courses run by the Economic and Social Research Council-funded North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP).

As a PhD student you will be appointed two subject experts/supervisors to help guide you through the process of researching and writing your thesis. In addition to your thesis, an oral examination will form an integral part of the assessment of your doctoral research.

 

Fees

Fees

We set our fees on an annual basis and the 2020/21 entry fees have not yet been set.

As a guide, our fees for 2019 were:

Full Time (per year) Part Time (per year)

Overseas £14,630 £7,310

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.
