COVID-19 (Coronavirus) update

Please view our admissions FAQs relating to measures in force due to the virus outbreak >

Admissions for entry in 2021/22 have now closed.

Applications for entry in October 2022 will open in September 2021.

Entry to the MRes in Management Studies programme is very competitive, so we advise candidates to apply early. Bear in mind that if you are shortlisted you will need to write a full research proposal by the end of December.

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).

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 7 January 2021 in preparation for your interview.

Interviews, either in person or via Skype, will take place in late January 2021. We expect to make offers in the first week of February.
