how long does it take to complete a business PhD? Alireza, Huddersfield


Our Answer:

PhD programmes usually last for a period of three years (or six years if you are completing a part-time PhD).

Norwich Business School at UEA offers students different pathways to a doctorate. Those yet to develop sufficient disciplinary and research technique training are encouraged to take the Master of Research (MRes) degree; those who have previous training will be able to register for a PhD immediately, subject to meeting our entry requirements.

Your first year of your PhD will be considered a probationary period and is considered as the design phase in which you will work closely with your supervisor and design the study.

Please take a look at the Fully Funded PhD Studentships in Social Sciences: Business Management that are available and please check the criteria to see if they are appropriate for you. When you’re ready here’s how to apply for your place as a research student at Norwich Business School here at UEA.
