n continuing a strong tradition of enabling joint supervisory teams across two of our Schools disciplinary groups, our PhD Finance and Accounting facilitates development of doctoral work that opens up new ways of thinking about contemporary business practices.
Our programme specialises in mixed methodology, drawing on both small scale in-depth primary data and the use of large datasets in order to address some of the key debates in the current economic and organizational arena. A key strength of our programme is the freedom given to you to develop your own training portfolio in order to ensure you gain the skills to communicate your findings across a wide range of academic, practitioner and policy audiences.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.
The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
It is important that you are able to finance your undergraduate or postgraduate studies, so we aim to provide you with comprehensive information to ensure you make the right decisions and find out about any available funding.
For home and EU students your main source of funding will be government loans, as well as University bursaries and scholarships.
While international students may be eligible for some scholarships, as well as additional funding from charities and trusts, it is imperative that you do not travel to the UK or begin your studies without ensuring you have enough money to cover all fees and living expenses. It is virtually impossible to make arrangements for financial support once you have left your home country, while the immigration authorities are unlikely to allow you UK entry unless you have evidence that you can cover the costs of your study.
