Postgraduate research (PhD)

Accounting and Finance at the University of Bristol has an enthusiastic research community, a welcoming atmosphere and excellent research facilities.

Research is central to the School of Accounting and Finance at the University of Bristol. The most recent UK-wide research assessment, REF2014, rated 78 per cent of the school's research in business and management as 'world leading' or 'internationally excellent'.

Candidates entering the PhD programme are normally required to take 60 credit points of taught units in their first year and to participate in PhD workshops and reading groups. Students are also encouraged to undertake further training in agreement with their supervisor for the duration of their studies.
