Application Criteria for Dean’s Scholarship
All applicants for the Dean’s Scholarships must meet the standard entry requirements for the PhD programme at the Aston Business School:
- UG Degree 2:1 or above
- MSc Degree – 65% in taught and dissertation elements.
- English Language requirements (TOEFL 101, IELTS 7)
Additionally, all applicants must have:
- GRE/GMAT at 70% (i.e. this means that the applicant has obtained a better score than 70% of all tested participants).
 Teaching is not required as a condition of this scholarship. All PhD students will be able to undertake paid teaching work should they wish to, where available, subject to a number of conditions. Students can only undertake teaching on successful completion of their Qualifying Report and must take the Aston Certificate: An Introduction to Learning and Teaching in HE. To ensure that research time is not affected, the total amount of teaching and/or research assistance hours a PhD student can undertake will be limited to 110 hours per year and will be agreed and monitored by the RDP office.
 GRE/GMAT is an independently administered test that assesses quantitative, analytical and verbal skills. This test allows for a rigorous degree of bench marking between applicants. The minimum requirement of 70% applies to each section. For candidates having additional English Language requirements (TOEFL/IELTS), these results will count instead of the verbal reasoning section.
The applicant must provide evidence of:
- UG Degree
- MSc Degree
- 2 comprehensive academic references
- GRE/GMAT Score
- Language (if required)
- Publications (if relevant)
