Course Summary

The research focus of the Department of Economics is on policy-relevant applied economics research, and we have specialists in applied microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics.

The Department is home to the Fraser of Allander Institute, a leading independent economic research institute focused on the Scottish economy giving PhD students the opportunity to become part of a department with strong links to the world of policy and business. We have a lively PhD programme in economics with a regular inflow of new students each year.

You'll benefit from a team of two supervisors with specialist knowledge in your field.

You'll join our economics research community, engage with our regular seminar series of external speakers, our brown bag workshop series to explore early research ideas, and with our annual Postgraduate Research Conference where you'll present your research.
