Study Opportunities and Postgraduate Research

We offer an MSc Behavioural Economics which is a one-year full time taught course with an option to study for a second year at the University of Konstanz or the University of Tübingen. 

Our MRes/ PhD is an integrated one year Masters in Research, from which students progress to the PhD. Students wishing to apply for a PhD are normally expected to apply to our MRes/PhD programme. In exceptional circumstances, students may ask to be admitted directly to the first year of the PhD (without completing the preliminary MRes year), but these applicants would normally not be considered for School of Economics' scholarships.

Information, including course content and study modules, is available from the School of Economics. You can find out about the postgraduate taught programme and postgraduate research degrees on their website. Information about how to apply for both is available on the how to apply page.

Listen to Nada Abdelghany on the MSc Behavioural Economics programme, and students from our other MSc programmes, share their thoughts on studying at Nottingham. 

My time at Nottingham helped me build a solid basic level of understanding of the field and definitely made me restless to learn more.

CeDEx is an incredible research environment in which to complete a PhD. Being a part of one of the preeminent behavioural economics research groups in the world means that you're exposed to the best and brightest new research all the time. Whether it's a casual conversation down the corridor with one of our own amazing researchers or at the weekly workshops when incredible researchers from around the world come to share their work, it's hard to think of a better environment to do this type of research. The support we receive as PhD students is incredible and my only real disappointment is that any future research environment will likely be less rich than this one.
