Course Summary

The research focus of the economics department 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. This can provide a key medium through which to engage with policy-makers and sell the relevance of your research. You'll join our economics research community, engage with our regular seminar series of external speakers, with our brown bag workshop series to explore early research ideas, and with our annual PGR Away Day where you will present your research.

During your studies, you'll be encouraged to submit and present papers to appropriate academic conferences. You'll also be encouraged to submit your work for publication in the department’s discussion paper series, and work towards submitting your papers to be considered for publication in academic journals. If you take up the opportunity to become involved in undergraduate teaching, delivering tutorials and/or supporting computer lab sessions, you'll receive appropriate training from the University and you'll also be encouraged to participate in the Graduate Teaching Assistant workshops offered by the Economics Network.
