Our Economics PhD is seen as the second stage of a four-year programme. The first step is the MRes Economics programme lasting one year, and the PhD follows on from this, lasting three years (with the added possibility of extensions).
Our PhD programme produces graduates who are sought-after by leading economics departments, business schools, and research institutions around the world.
We are pleased to be able to offer generous studentships for the duration of the MRes/PhD course for those with strong research potential.
The School of Economics has a leading reputation in research and teaching. In the 2014 Research Excellence Framework, our School was ranked 6th in the UK for research intensity, 10th in research output and 12th overall. We are also ranked in the top 10 for business and economics in the United Kingdom by the Times Higher Education World University
