Postgraduate Research Degrees


Our postgraduate research programme offers you the opportunity to study economics to PhD level with expert supervision and additional research training. The programme consists of a combination of taught courses and supervised independent research, leading to the completion of a PhD thesis. Our alumni have gone on to a wide range of careers.

Because academic staff conduct world-leading research across a wide range of subjects, the school can offer supervision in most areas of the discipline. However, applicants are advised to consult staff profile pages for information on current research interests.

You will be allocated two supervisors - at least one of whom is identified prior to admission. While we make every effort to match applicants to staff on the basis of their research interests, it is not always possible for us to offer supervision if staff face capacity constraints in supervision.
