Applying

Admissions for entry in 2017/18 have now closed.

Applications for entry in October 2018 will open in September 2017.

Entry to the MRes in Management Studies programme is very competitive, so we advise candidates to apply early.

All MRes/PhD places are fully funded (fees and maintenance) through University of Cambridge scholarships, ESRC studentships, and CJBS scholarships and bursaries. To be admissible for funding, you must apply to all relevant funding sources indicated in your application form.

Our application process can be completed in two steps:

  1. Check you meet our requirements
  2. Complete and submit your application

The required supporting documents include a 500-word research proposal. You will also need to nominate your desired PhD pathway (specialisation). The MRes programme currently accepts applicants for all the PhD pathways except Finance.

Applications are considered on a rolling basis. You can expect to hear whether or not you have been shortlisted for interview within three to four weeks of submitting your completed application and required supporting documents.

If you are shortlisted, you will be asked to extend and revise your research proposal by 9 January 2017 in preparation for your interview.

Video interviews will take place between 23-27 January 2017. We expect offers to be made in the first week of February.
