The PhD 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. The emphasis is on involving PhD students in our areas of expertise, providing them with a strong environment in which to pursue their research, and encouraging and helping with publication. Students are also encouraged to present their work both within the department and at international conferences.
The final stage of the PhD degree is the viva voce examination, in which students are required to defend their thesis to a Board of Examiners.
