Scholarships and support

All students offered a place on the PhD programme receive full funding, which includes a tuition fee waiver and a stipend guaranteed for five years.

All students are expected to apply for alternative support for which they are eligible (e.g. funding from their home countries).  Some current students have received funding from organisations such as AXA and RADMA. 


In addition, monetary prizes for academic excellence are awarded by London Business School’s research centres and institutes. The AQR Fellowship Award, for example, recognises outstanding PhD students with research interests in the field of asset management, broadly defined.

Students also receive financial support from the programme enabling them to attend the leading international conferences for their area of specialisation.


Finally, students have the opportunity to do paid research and teaching assistance work.



There is no residential accommodation at the School, but students can apply for accommodation in some of the University of London Intercollegiate Halls of Residence. A number of these also have accommodation for couples and families.

The University of London Housing Services also provides information on privately rented accommodation. Their informative website is a useful starting point.
