Applying

Applications for 2019/20 are now open.

11 October 2018 | Funding deadline for US students currently living in the US

3 December 2018 | Deadline for submitting your application and all supporting documents (non-US students)

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 considered for admission you must apply for any and all funding for which you are eligible and tick the Scholarships box in the application form.

Our application process can be completed in two steps:

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

The application form requires you to write 500 words about your research interests and intended research topics. 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 to proceed with your application within two to three weeks of submitting your completed application.

If you are shortlisted, you will be put in contact with a member of CJBS faculty and asked to complete and submit a research proposal (of up to 2,000 words) by 3 January 2019 in preparation for your interview.

Interviews, either in person or via Skype, will take place in late January 2019. We expect to make offers in the first week of February.
