UK/EU APPLICANTS

Alumni bursary

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary. 

Who is eligible?

  • To be eligible you must have obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree award from the University of Leeds. This applies regardless of when you graduated (eg obtained BA, BSc, BEng, BEd, LLB, MA, MSc, MPhil, PhD, MLitt, MEd, MEng, MPhys, MSci, MChem, MMath, MBiol etc).
  • The University allows registration onto a research degree if students have completed all the requirements for a Masters degree but have not yet been awarded. This is on the condition that the student supplies confirmation of the award of the qualification at a specific date after commencing the research degree. Applicants in this situation are also eligible to be considered for an Alumni Tuition Fee Bursary.
  • You must register for an award leading to a Masters or PhD.
  • You must be self financing. You are still deemed to be self financing if you have support from a friend or relative or if you are in receipt of other University of Leeds scholarships and awards.
  • The bursary is open to students who are commencing their studies from September 2013; the bursary cannot be awarded retrospectively.

Value of the award:

The University will pay 10% of your tuition fees for each year you are registered and studying on the course (pro rata for part year programmes). The bursary will not be applied in the overtime (writing-up) period for research degree students.

The alumni bursary can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Leeds scholarships and awards; the 10% bursary is calculated based on the net fee remaining ie after other scholarship and awards have been deducted.

How to apply:

If you think you are eligible you need to email phd@lubs.leeds.ac.uk. In the email you will need to provide information regarding your former studies, the course you have applied for and how you are funded for your tuition fees. We will need to verify that you are a former student and you will need to confirm that you have read the terms and conditions and are self financing for your tuition fees. You may be asked to provide evidence of your former University of Leeds award. If your course is of more than one year's duration you will not have to re-apply for the bursary each year.

Who is not eligible?

  • Students who are funded at any time during their studies by a sponsor, ie have your tuition fees paid for by an employer or other industry or business sponsor, government, research council, charity or other third party organisation.
  • Students on courses that are run in conjunction with other universities and where they are joint awards.
  • Students who have not obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate award from the University of Leeds. Programmes of study that do not lead to a degree award include pre-sessional programmes in English Language, English Language Foundation Programmes, occasional study programmes, exchange programmes, any certificate/ diploma programme or any continuing professional development programme.

    Programmes which are not eligible for the Alumni Bursary are:
  • Postgraduate Diplomas or Postgraduate Certificates.
  • PGCE programmes.
  • A BA, BSc, Master's or PhD when studied as an intercalating part of the MBBS or BDS programmes.
  • Programmes that are part of professional training programmes for dentists or doctors.
  • Jointly awarded degrees.

Please note:

The University will review the bursary annually and reserves the right to vary or withdraw this bursary at its sole discretion but changes will not be applied retrospectively.

You must advise the University if at any time (before or after you register on your course) you obtain funding for your tuition fees from sponsors. If you are found to be in breach of your commitments, in any way not acted in good faith, or not responded fully or accurately to a University request for information, the University is entitled to immediately suspend a bursary. It may also then recover the 10% previously paid.

ESRC Grant-Linked Studentship in Consumer Data Analytics: Ethical Consumption/Shopping (3 February 2015)

ESRC Grant - Linked studentships in Consumer Data Analytics:Ethical Consumption/Shopping

Download an application form - Application Deadline 3rd February 2015

ESRC Studentship in Consumer Data Analytics – Ethical Consumption/Shopping: Leeds University Business School

Number of awards: x1 Full Time Studentships available which must commence on 1 October 2015.

Value of award: tuition fees at the relevant Full time UK / EU rate, and a standard RCUK maintenance grant  per annum for 2015/16 session £13,863* (subject to change and approval); This award will be held in the Leeds University Business School. 

Further Information:

The University of Leeds is seeking a talented and highly motivated doctoral researcher to join the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) which was established earlier in 2014 with funding from the Economic and Social Research Council’s (ESRC) Big Data Network.

The CDRC is part of the Leeds Institute for Data Analytics (LIDA), which has been established with more than £20 million of funding from the University and four major research councils (including the ESRC).  The city of Leeds is already recognised as a hub for big data in business, health care and academic research.  LIDA will move the University even further to the forefront by combining projects in consumer data research, medical bioinformatics, digital humanities and monitoring environmental change to provide a truly multi-disciplinary approach to this exciting and challenging field.

As part of this initiative we are offering one ESRC funded studentship within Leeds University Business School.

Though the clear majority of consumers prioritise conventional product features (e.g., tangible product attributes and pricing), they are increasingly susceptible to ethical/sustainability (e.g., social and eco-friendly) cues and appeals.  There is reason to believe that while a large number of consumers purport to be motivated to consume ethically, the number consistently acting on such motives is much fewer.  This doctoral study is to focus on ethical consumption/shopping. Supervised by Professors Matthew Robson, Wandi Bruin de Bruine, and/or Timothy Devinney, the study is interested in when, how, and why consumers engage in ethical/sustainable consumption; which refers to conscious and deliberate decisions to make certain consumption choices due to moral and personal beliefs.  Using high quality behavioural data provided by corporate research partners, we hope to comprehensively address the above matter.  The study might also seek to combine data from different sources, as ethical sensitivity is subject to a complex set of drivers. For instance, the project could address ethical consumption/shopping behaviour by combining financial data, weather data, and mobile phone data to explain variations in consumption motivations reflected in their ethical shopping behaviours.

Applications are welcomed from any social science (or related) discipline, although candidates for three year studentships (+3) must have already achieved the required level of research training (usually by the attainment of a Masters) and should have strong analytic skills from a numerate background.

Candidates for four year studentships (1+3) are also invited from social science disciplines and will be required to complete a one year (funded) masters’ programme (preferably in either Business Analytics or Geographical Information Systems) in advance of their PhD study. 

Candidates must also have an interest in marketing, decision-making, and/or international management, given the substantive foci of the potential supervisory panel.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Applicants MUST first submit an application for the research degree programme and be in receipt of a University BANNER ID Number (Student ID Number). ESRC applications without a valid University ID Number will be rejected.
  • These awards are only available to nationals from the UK and EU and are not open to applicants who are liable to pay academic fees at the international fee rate. UK applicants will be eligible for a full award (paying fees and maintenance). EU applicants are normally eligible for a fees only award, unless they have been resident in the UK for 3 years immediately preceding the date of the award;
  • Applicants must hold a least a First Degree at undergraduate level equivalent to at least a UK Upper Second Class Honors Degree or equivalent and for +3 applicants a UK Masters degree with an overall average of 60% or higher is also required for the Business School;
  • Applicants whose first language is not English must meet the Business School’s minimum English Language requirements;
  • Applicants applying for a +3 award must demonstrate that they have already completed the full research training requirements.

We therefore particularly welcome applications for these studentships that link to the following key research themes currently being undertaken within Leeds University Business School:

The urban political economy

The urban political economy

This project will focus on local development and interdisciplinary work and involve local organizations and the City Council in the co-production of research findings.

AIRE's aims are to create new connections on significant topics involving economic and social dynamics - especially those related to economic growth, employment, poverty and inequality – with special attention to the Leeds city region. AIRE has been developing these links with Leeds ACTS, Leeds City Council, and with several University of Leeds centres and networks that focus a portion of their activities in the Leeds city-region. The aim is to use these growing links across the city and within the University to create innovations in urban political economy which will lead to impactful policy ideas and experiments, and which may encourage the creation of new University urban academic programs.

One initial example of the sort of synergies that are possible is in the area of financial exclusion. From the early 2000s onward, the Leeds City Council has identified financial exclusion as a key policy problem to be addressed. Three separate surveys of financial exclusion have been undertaken in that time frame. Academics affiliated with the Centre for Decision Research (CDR) and with AIRE have participated in work on this topic, and/or engaged in knowledge-exchange activities with City Council staff and members of the Third Sector.

Financialisation and open-economy macroeconomics

Financialisation and open-economy macroeconomics

Research Centre: Applied Institute of Research in Economics (AIRE)

This project will focus on financialisation and its policy implications in developing countries (with a particular focus on Brazil). The Finance and Inequality in Europe Project (FIEP) has been funded for an extended period by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and several other partners. Under the leadership of Prof Gary Dymski and Dr Annina Kaltenbrunner, FIEP has conducted regular workshops on financialization and financial regulation, on the potential of development banking in restoring European prosperity, and other related topics. The FIEP has generated substantial interest in Latin America, with some of the project’s initial findings and recommendations presented in Brazil and in Mexico.

Financialization and financial regulation

Financialisation and financial regulation

This project will focus on in depth research arising from the findings for Europe that have emerged from the Finance and Inequality in Europe Project (FIEP). The FIEP has been funded for an extended period by the Foundation for European Progressive Studies (FEPS) and several other partners. Under the leadership of Prof Gary Dymski and Dr Annina Kaltenbrunner, FIEP has conducted regular workshops on financialization and financial regulation, on the potential of development banking in restoring European prosperity, and other related topics. FIEP activities have brought AIRE members into contact with Members of European Parliament and with other key policy-makers in Europe.

Sustainable and resilient food supply chains: Understanding the complexity of multi-tier global supply networks

Lead supervisor: Professor Chee Yew Wong

In order to feed the expanding world population under increasing uncertainty in weather conditions, there is a need to significantly improve the sustainability and resilience of the global food supply chains. Apart from advances in food science and agricultural technologies, private and public organizations have started to recognize a lot of opportunities for reducing waste and protecting the food supply chains especially when we can understand the complexity of the multi-tier global food supply networks. Researchers at the Centre for Operations and Supply Chain Research (COSCR) have developed a framework for managing sustainable multi-tier supply chains and proposed supply network theories for understanding the influences of supply network complexity. This research aims to further advance the framework and theories by conducting empirical investigations of selected food global supply networks. The PhD research is a part of a multi-national research project and therefore will be supported by experts from different countries.

Smart cities and grass roots innovation: How can advances in...

Smart cities and grass roots innovation: How can advances in information and communication technology and urban supply chains generate opportunities for underserved communities?

While there is much hype around the notion of Smart Cities it is unclear how they may lead to improved socio-economic outcomes for underserved communities. Part of the benefit of smart cities emerges from improved connectivity, integration, information flows and new business solutions for sustainable urban supply chain. Therefore, there is opportunity to harness these benefits to provide economic benefits for underserved communities. This research aims to generate knowledge on how to include underserved communities within Smart Cities and use Smart Cities as a vehicle to promote local business opportunity.

How finance serves economic, social and environmental needs (FESSUD project)

How finance serves economic, social and environmental needs (FESSUD project)

The Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development (FESSUD) project explores the nature of the relationship between financialisation (the processes of the growth of the importance of financial systems, finance and financial motives) and the sustainability of the financial system, economic and social development and the environment.

The nature of national and international financial systems and their evolution in the past three decades are analysed and assessed. The causes and consequences of the global and national financial crises starting in 2007 are thoroughly investigated. Lessons for policy are to be drawn from the financial crisis about the nature and impacts of financialisation.

Central issues addressed are the ways in which the growth and performance of economies in the last 30 years have been dependent on the characteristics of the processes of financialisation and how financialisation has impacted on the achievement of economic, social, and environmental objectives. A major feature of FESSUD is its scope of enquiry into the range of economic, social and political consequences from financialisation.

The research programme of FESSUD integrates diverse levels, methods and disciplinary traditions with the aim of developing a comprehensive policy agenda for changing the role of the financial system to help achieve a future which is sustainable in environmental, social and economic terms.

Infrastructure Business models, valuation and Innovation for Local Delivery (iBuild)

Infrastructure Business models, valuation and Innovation for Local Delivery (iBuild)

The i-BUILD research theme investigates new business models to improve infrastructure systems and services and to promote regional growth and sustainable development. 

i-BUILD is developing new business models to improve the delivery of infrastructure systems and the services they provide. These new business models will better exploit the technical and market opportunities that emerge from the increased interdependence of modern infrastructure systems. 

i-BUILD focuses on infrastructure at the scale of neighbourhoods, towns and cities where infrastructure is most dense and interdependencies between infrastructures, economies and society are most profound.

As cities, local authorities and local enterprise partnerships are given more powers for infrastructure delivery and to raise finances it is crucial to develop robust new business models to develop infrastructure related business and growth locally - to the benefit of the nation.

Information, technology and emerging models of public and private policing in the contemporary city

Information, technology and emerging models of public and private policing in the contemporary city

Research Centre: Adaptation Information and Technology (AIMTech)

Supervisors: Prof David Allen and Stuart Lister

This theme emerges from on-going interdisciplinary collaboration between Leeds University Business School and the School of Law. The theme takes as its starting point the assumption that new forms of technology are having a potentially transformative effect on the provision of local policing. The two PhD projects within the theme will explore different aspects of this transformative potential, how it is influencing practice and with what practical, normative and conceptual implications. In this, information systems and different forms of technology are increasingly being used to both improve communication and information flow between partners or to redefine the nature of the relationships between local policing partners allowing citizens, neighbourhood and voluntary organisations to be both be more informed and take more responsibility for policing functions.  This could be through the creation of new networks which reconfigure the relationships passing activity from the police to other community policing partners or it could take the form of applying different policing models combined with social media to empower communities. These effects will be most visible in the contemporary city, where crime and insecurity tend to cluster with implications for the allocation of public and private policing resources.

PROJECT 1: New technologies and the role of the police in community policing 

This project will explore how new technology is reconfiguring modes of traditional and territorially-embedded, public policing i.e. how technology is shaping institutionalised practices within the delivery of community policing. It will therefore consider the influence of new technologies on what police do, how they do it, and with what implications. To what extent is the emergence of new technology shaping the role of the police as ‘information managers’ or ‘knowledge brokers’, with resultant impacts on police focus and activity. To what extent is new technology fostering enhanced informal social control by local communities (i.e. community self-regulation) therein reconfiguring relations between the state and citizens? 

PROJECT 2: New technologies and relations between plural forms of policing 

Policing scholars have increasingly come to recognise the importance of partnership relations between different providers of policing within the ‘security quilt’. The need for the police to engage with the wider policing family, including local municipal authorities, private sector, voluntary sector and civil society organisations, has also been recognised by a series of law and policy initiatives. Yet there has been no consideration of how relations between the various assortment of policing agencies might be re-shaped and re-cast by the network connections enabled by new forms of technology. Whilst it is widely recognised that the effectiveness of formal responses to crime and disorder is, to a greater or less extent, contingent on the whether and how different providers within the security quilt are joined up and coordinated, there are also likely to be implications for whether the allocation of public and private resources are fair, just and equitable. This project will therefore explore the influence of new technologies on relations between plural providers of policing, descriptively but also normatively.

New ways of working

New ways of working

Research Centre: Socio-Technical Centre (STC)

The world of work is changing in response to technological innovations and global demands and pressures. This creates challenges but also opportunities for new ways of

a) delivering health & social care and

b) delivering innovation through manufacturing supply networks.  

To capitalise on these opportunities, research is needed that takes account of both social and technological dimensions of future scenarios, including the design of jobs and new uses of technology. 

These projects build on the existing networks and expertise between Leeds University Business School in the areas of health and social care and supply chain management and the Faculty of Engineering’s Mechanical Engineering department on manufacturing supply networks.

For more information about the themes, please contact the supervisors listed against the project.

How to Apply for a University Research Scholarship

INTERNATIONAL APPLICANTS

Alumni bursary

If you are a former student of the University of Leeds you may be eligible for a 10% alumni tuition fee bursary. 

Who is eligible?

  • To be eligible you must have obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate degree award from the University of Leeds. This applies regardless of when you graduated (eg obtained BA, BSc, BEng, BEd, LLB, MA, MSc, MPhil, PhD, MLitt, MEd, MEng, MPhys, MSci, MChem, MMath, MBiol etc).
  • The University allows registration onto a research degree if students have completed all the requirements for a Masters degree but have not yet been awarded. This is on the condition that the student supplies confirmation of the award of the qualification at a specific date after commencing the research degree. Applicants in this situation are also eligible to be considered for an Alumni Tuition Fee Bursary.
  • You must register for an award leading to a Masters or PhD.
  • You must be self financing. You are still deemed to be self financing if you have support from a friend or relative or if you are in receipt of other University of Leeds scholarships and awards.
  • The bursary is open to students who are commencing their studies from September 2013; the bursary cannot be awarded retrospectively.

Value of the award:

The University will pay 10% of your tuition fees for each year you are registered and studying on the course (pro rata for part year programmes). The bursary will not be applied in the overtime (writing-up) period for research degree students.

The alumni bursary can be awarded in conjunction with other University of Leeds scholarships and awards; the 10% bursary is calculated based on the net fee remaining ie after other scholarship and awards have been deducted.

How to apply:

If you think you are eligible you need to email phd@lubs.leeds.ac.uk. In the email you will need to provide information regarding your former studies, the course you have applied for and how you are funded for your tuition fees. We will need to verify that you are a former student and you will need to confirm that you have read the terms and conditions and are self financing for your tuition fees. You may be asked to provide evidence of your former University of Leeds award. If your course is of more than one year's duration you will not have to re-apply for the bursary each year.

Who is not eligible?

  • Students who are funded at any time during their studies by a sponsor, ie have your tuition fees paid for by an employer or other industry or business sponsor, government, research council, charity or other third party organisation.
  • Students on courses that are run in conjunction with other universities and where they are joint awards.
  • Students who have not obtained a full undergraduate or postgraduate award from the University of Leeds. Programmes of study that do not lead to a degree award include pre-sessional programmes in English Language, English Language Foundation Programmes, occasional study programmes, exchange programmes, any certificate/ diploma programme or any continuing professional development programme.

    Programmes which are not eligible for the Alumni Bursary are:
  • Postgraduate Diplomas or Postgraduate Certificates.
  • PGCE programmes.
  • A BA, BSc, Master's or PhD when studied as an intercalating part of the MBBS or BDS programmes.
  • Programmes that are part of professional training programmes for dentists or doctors.
  • Jointly awarded degrees.

Please note:

The University will review the bursary annually and reserves the right to vary or withdraw this bursary at its sole discretion but changes will not be applied retrospectively.

You must advise the University if at any time (before or after you register on your course) you obtain funding for your tuition fees from sponsors. If you are found to be in breach of your commitments, in any way not acted in good faith, or not responded fully or accurately to a University request for information, the University is entitled to immediately suspend a bursary. It may also then recover the 10% previously paid.
