Course Summary

The MPhil programme provides an opportunity to undertake original research into a wide variety of areas. The department has a strong international research reputation, covering all mainstream fields of economics. Many of our academics are acknowledged as leading the field in their disciplines. The department has a lively PhD community and team of academic staff, with their own individual research topic areas. Students are also encouraged to present their work both within the department and at international conferences.

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) programme comprises a more significant piece of research which will enable you to contribute to the academic community through a larger written thesis (typically up to 90,000 words). You can complete your PhD in 2 to 4 years (full-time) or up to 6 years (part-time)

Our research activities cover all the mainstream fields of Economics. A combination of active strategy and natural evolution has led to the development of these groups: Econometrics; Economic Theory; Labour, Education and Health Economics; Macroeconomics and Finance; Public and Environmental Economics. In addition to these Research Clusters, we have also been involved with Health Economics, Contemporary Global Politics, and History of Economic Thought research.
