Course content

The PhD programmes are open to students who have successfully completed a taught Master's programme in economics. Depending on the programme and your level of achievement, you have to take advanced training in the first year of study. If you have a recognised Master's degree, you take modules related to your research topic, otherwise you take up to six modules to reach a suitable level of research training. You must complete the assessment for any of these modules before going on to the second year of research. Further research training in subsequent years includes advanced reading groups, research workshops and (if needed) attending specific courses related to your research.
