I am not sure whether to apply for a research MPhil or the MRes - what should I do?
The MRes programme is intended for students with prior research experience at masters level in a subject relevant for management research or research relevant work experience. If you do not meet the academic requirements for the MRes you should apply to one of our research MPhil programmes.
Please do not apply to both MRes and MPhil. We will review your MRes application. If your application is more suited to a research MPhil programme we will let you know and we will transfer the application online.
Can I apply directly to the PhD programme?
All applicants should apply to the MRes or a research MPhil in the first instance. If your application is considered so exceptional that direct entry to the PhD is possible, then your application will be transferred to a PhD application online.
What are the requirements for entry into the programme?
Visit the Our requirements webpage to see our entry requirements for the MRes in Management Studies.
Normally an offer of admission to the MRes will be conditional upon you achieving a particular grade in your current masters degree or providing independent evidence that you were in the top five per cent of your year.
The MRes in Management Studies is a full-time programme and requires the completion of any current training or education programme or release from your current institution for the duration of your study.
Does an MBA degree meet the requirement of a previous masters degree?
No, not on its own. Applicants with an MBA, Master of Finance or other professional practice masters are required to have a further masters degree with a research component or two to three years of high-level work experience relevant for their proposed research.
I am not sure whether my academic qualifications make me eligible. What should I do?
Please look carefully at the University's information on equivalence of undergraduate degrees. If you are still uncertain please use our online enquiry form.
Do you require work experience?
Work experience is not a requirement, although work experience relevant to your research interests is highly appreciated. We normally expect no more than five years of work experience.
Do I need to contact members of Cambridge Judge faculty before I apply?
Before applying, you may wish to look at our faculty research webpages to determine whether your research interests fit those of the School. There is no need to contact members of our faculty before you apply. Your application will be reviewed to determine which Cambridge Judge faculty are the best fit. You will then be put in contact with faculty member(s) to discuss the development of your research proposal.
Do I need to nominate a supervisor on the application form?
There is no need to nominate a supervisor on the application form.
Do you require a GRE/GMAT score as part of the application process?
