Brunel PhD Without Residence
College of Business & Finance
Brunel University London, is working in partnership with Ahlia University, Bahrain, to deliver the prestigious PhD (Without Residence) programme in Bahrain. It was launched in 2007 and is helping to create a new generation of scholars and business leaders, benefiting society by developing a research culture and assisting the evolution from a knowledge-consuming society to a knowledge-producing society.
A research degree in business and management from a UK university with an international reputation is a highly sought-after qualification. Until very recently, however, studying for a UK doctorate meant spending at least three years in the UK and anyone who was unable to do this would not be able to achieve their dream of gaining a UK based PhD. This doctoral programme represents a unique opportunity to gain a UK PhD and be part of Brunel University London. .
Research in the Brunel Business School has grown substantially in both quantity and quality in recent years. In REF2014 the Brunel Business School ranked 20th in the UK in research intensity, up from 65th place in REF2008. Today over 85% of the Brunel Business School academic staff are research active working in a research community of six well-focused research groups, all with international profiles and collaborative research initiatives. Ahlia University staff make a vibrant research oriented community and together Brunel and Ahlia are cooperating to produce a strong inter-institutional research environment. You should therefore be assured that you will be offered all the support, guidance, research experience and expertise to help you to successfully complete your PhD.
