Postgraduate research plays an important part in the Business School's academic life. Our growing community of MRes and PhD students investigate a wide range of research topics, and can study with us full-time or part-time:

  • Full-time research students are based at our Milton Keynes campus, where they form a lively and supportive community
  • Part-time research students are normally resident in the UK and attend regular meetings at OUBS. Students based overseas are only accepted on to the part-time programme in exceptional circumstances

Full-time fully-funded studentships

The Open University Business School offers fully-funded full-time PhD studentships, starting on 1 October every year. Applicants should have minimum qualifications of an upper second class honours degree and 120 credits of research methods training.
