PhD programme   


At Nottingham University Business School China, we are committed to training the next generation of business scholars. We offer PhD opportunities in many areas of business with supervisors available for wide range of interests and with excellent facilities on campus. 

Uniqueness of our PhD degree programme:

  • Rigorous Research Training: Our PhD programme combines taught modules with personal research supervised by at least two academic staff.
  • International Diversity: Current PhD students come from 7 different countries/ regions and research supervisors from around 30 countries/ regions.
  • Scholarships: A growing number of full scholarships covering tuition, medical insurance, housing and living costs are available. Application is competitive.
  • Teaching Opportunities: We offer teaching training and Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA) opportunities to our students to help prepare for an academic career.

 A PhD at Nottingham University Business School China was a very valuable experience in my life. The PhD program not only provides international teaching and training, encourages students to participate in academic research activities both inside and outside the school, but also provides valuable opportunities to exchange and cooperate with industry experts. I have benefited a lot from it. In addition to academic knowledge, the rigorous attitude of teachers has also benefited me for a lifetime. Learning in UNNC, make me meet a better self!
