Linked to the PhD in Management programme, this route will allow students to maintain their current occupational role, studying part-time at the University of Edinburgh.
The training foundation given to all PhD students in the Business School is tailored for those on the professional route and focuses entirely on the development of their research proposal. As a student on this route you will undertake four compulsory Supervised Reading courses to build your research skills, under the guidance of your supervisor.
|Course Code||Course Name||Semester||Credits|
|CMSE11442||Supervised Reading: Refining the Proposal||1||20|
|CMSE11443||Supervised Reading: Methods 1||1||20|
|BUST11231||Supervised Reading: Literature Review||2||20|
|CMSE11444||Supervised Reading: Methods 2||2||20|
As your supervisor will play a large role in your training, any formal application to this route should be made along with support from your proposed supervisor.
How to apply
For information on the entry requirements and how to apply, please see the Entry Requirement guidance for the PhD in Management programme. Interested applicants should first contact potential supervisors, sending them a draft proposal and academic CV.
Once you and your proposed supervisor are ready to proceed, please submit an application to the PhD in Management programme using our online system. In addition to the application documents required for an application to the general route, please also provide the following:
- A one-page statement detailing why this route is a good fit for you, and how your proposed supervisor will help to provide a supportive and challenging environment for your particular research topic. Please ensure that this statement includes any specific training needs.
- A supervisory CV to demonstrate how this particular supervisor is a good, if not the best, fit with your particular topic.
For both documents you will need to work closely with your proposed supervisor. For the supervisory CV element we would expect the proposed supervisor to take the lead.
