Entry Requirements

To be registered to study for a PhD in Brunel Business School, you will need to hold a good honours degree (at least a 2:1) and usually a Master’s from a UK university or recognised equivalents from an overseas institution.

The Senate reserves the right to assess the eligibility of applicants on an individual basis.

If English is not your first language, you will be required to demonstrate an adequate level of proficiency.

  • IELTS: 6.5 (min 6 in all areas)
  • Pearson: 58 (51 in all subscores)
  • BrunELT: 65% (min 60% in all areas)

Please note that in order for your application to be considered, you will need to have already met the Business School's English Language requirements at the time of application. Should a candidate submit an application without having already satisfied the English Language entry requirement, the application will be declined automatically.
