Economics PhD at the University of Bristol

Department of Economics

About the Programme

The University of Bristol's School of Economics is a thriving centre for teaching and research. We have an active and successful PhD programme, and over 50 research-active staff, publishing in top international journals.
A strong research environment can make a major contribution to successful PhD study. The high quality of the School's research environment was illustrated in the most recent UK-wide research assessment, REF2014. 88 per cent of our research activity was rated as world-leading or internationally excellent, and within THE analysis of REF 2014 we came first for impact.
Our PhD programme aims to develop rounded, well-trained and innovative researchers who can advance into high-level careers in academia or outside it. More detailed information about our research and the PhD programme is available on our website.
The University of Bristol has been ranked as one of the top 60 universities in the world (QS world rankings 2020). The city of Bristol has frequently been declared one of the best UK cities to live in, including by The Sunday Times (March 2017).

The PhD Programme
We welcome applications for our PhD programmes in economics and offer both full and part-time PhD study. The PhD programme can be studied full-time over three years (maximum four) or part-time over six years.
For successful PhD study, a good match between a student's research interests and those of their supervisors is vital. Our supervisors are active in research and often experts in their fields. On our website, we list potential supervisors and their main supervision interests.
Full-time PhD students are typically allocated study space and a computer, as well as access to excellent libraries and a range of drop-in study spaces around the University. IT provision is flexible and allows scope for remote working when convenient.
We offer financial support to our PhD students for the costs of conference and workshop attendance. The Bristol Doctoral College (BDC) offers research training to support PhD students at various stages of their work. Opportunities to access training are also available through the South West Doctoral Training Centre (SWDTC). The SWDTC and BDC allow students to network with a wide range of staff and students, and provide a range of training opportunities. Interested students can also investigate opportunities to undertake teaching within the School, with relevant training available.
As well as supporting PhD study within the School's main disciplines, we also have a strong track record in supervising interdisciplinary research across a wider range of areas.

PhD studentships and bursaries are sometimes available. The details of available funding are advertised on the School website, together with further information on funding opportunities available from the University.
