Organisation, Work and Technology PhD - 2018 Entry

Entry Year
2018

Duration
Full time 36 Month(s)

Course Overview

Our research interests cover a variety of aspects of contemporary work, management and organisations. We study the relationships between HRM and knowledge management processes, as well as between globalisation and work in the knowledge economy. We systematically investigate processes of organisational change and their relationships with information technology, as well as the complex issues of business ethics and corporate governance.

We have a strong interest in the theoretical frameworks through which work organisations are analysed. Also important to us are the broader social, ethical and environmental concerns raised by the intersection of contemporary economic, cultural, organisational and managerial practices and technology.

We offer excellent postgraduate student support. Supervision is an essential aspect of the research relationship and we always have two members of staff involved with each doctoral student. The Department of Organisation, Work and Technology also organises a series of seminars with leading national and international academics and encourages you to organise annual working conferences at which you can present and develop your own work.

    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.
