Outline

Applications are invited for the Jacob van Artevelde Scholarship in Financial Economics at Cardiff Business School.

The School runs a 1+1+2 PhD programme where students spend the first two years of their studies undertaking advanced course work: the first at MSc Economics level in a core subject, and the second at MRes in Advanced Economics. However, for this scholarship there is a preference for a candidate with a good MSc Degree in economics who could be exempt from the first year of study under the programme and proceed directly to the MRes and complete the PhD in three (1+2) years.

As a Cardiff Business School doctoral student, the Jacob van Artevelde Scholar will be joining a vibrant research environment supervised and supported by academics working at the forefront of their disciplines. Research groups of relevance to the Scholar include:

What is funded

Full UK/EU tuition fees and a stipend of £14,000 per annum will be provided for three or four years.

Full awards (fees plus maintenance stipend) are open to UK Nationals and EU students who can satisfy UK residency requirements. EU nationals who had been ordinarily resident in the UK throughout the three year period immediately preceding the start date of an award (including for the purposes of full-time education) are eligible for a full award. Other EU nationals are eligible for a fees-only award.

Duration

3-4 years

Eligibility

Open to all UK/EU students.

Candidates should have an excellent academic background in Economics or an Economics-related subject, holding a 1st or strong upper 2nd class degree and an appropriate Master’s degree with an average mark of at least 65%.

Applications for 1+1+2 studentships can also be considered from holders of a first-class undergraduate degree in Economics or another first-class degree strongly related to Economics.
