The MRes/PhD is the normal route to PhD Economics at Nottingham. It is an integrated one year Masters in Research, from which students progress to the PhD in Economics.

Students wishing to apply for a PhD in Economics 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 please note that these applicants would normally not be considered for school scholarships.
