Course Summary

The PhD in Health Economics will provide you with a thorough training in health economics for researchers. In your first year you will undertake assessed graduate training in research methods and in health economics to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge for research in health economics, while also beginning work on your research project. In years 2 and 3 you will continue to pursue your research project, culminating in the submission of a doctoral thesis.

Both the Integrated PhD in Economics and the PhD in Health Economics include the option of taking a further 'writing up' year following the end of the formal registration period. In the case of the iPhD this would represent year 5 of the programme, while this would be year 4 in the case of the PhD in Health Economics.
