The Economics PhD offers students the opportunity to study economics to PhD level, with expert supervision and additional research training. The programme consists of a combination of taught courses and supervised independent research, leading to the completion of a PhD thesis. [+]

Doctoral Programs in Economics in England in United Kingdom. PhD Economics A PhD is the most advanced form of postgraduate study. It is awarded on the successful completion of a programme of supervised research and is assessed by an oral examination and final thesis. The Economics PhD offers students the opportunity to study economics to PhD level, with expert supervision and additional research training. The programme consists of a combination of taught courses and supervised independent research, leading to the completion of a PhD thesis. Because academic staff conduct world-leading research across a wide range of subjects, the school can offer expert supervision in most areas of the discipline. Students are allocated two supervisors and, while we make every effort to match applicants to staff on the basis of their research interests, it is not always possible due to staff capacity constraints. Regular annual and quarterly reviews are held to ensure smooth progress of the research work. During the first year, students complete taught courses in order to acquire the necessary skills and background knowledge for their research. Some are compulsory and some are recommended by their supervisors. All students take the PhD Economics Research Methods module and at least one other module. They also undertake research and generic skills training, provided by the School of Economics and the Graduate School, and start work on their research. From the second year, students focus in more detail on their research. Training is also provided for the preparation of articles for submission to academic journals and for applying for jobs in academia. Graduates from our PhD programme have helped advance the frontier of economic knowledge across a wide range of economics sub-fields, evidenced by their offer of positions in the best universities around the world upon graduation, as well as in policy agencies (World Bank, IMF, OECD etc) and the publication of their research in top economics journals. As a consequence, Nottingham has long been viewed as a leading PhD programme in the UK and more widely. Key facts Nottingham was awarded the highest possible score in the latest Quality Assurance Agency teaching review The latest Tilburg ranking of economics departments puts the school 6th in the UK, 13th in Europe and 36th in the world We are ranked 6th among the UK's economics departments for research power in the latest Research Excellence Framework Facilities School facilities The school provides a range of resources for postgraduate research students, including computing, software and study facilities.

It offers networked computer stations and Wi-Fi access for laptops, a study area, a social area with comfortable seating, a quiet study zone, and kitchen facilities. Doctoral Training Centre The Nottingham Economic and Social Research Council Doctoral Training Centre (ESRC DTC) is one of just 21 centres to receive accreditation by the Economic and Social Research Council and supports students to undertake cutting-edge interdisciplinary research. The Centre offers advanced training opportunities to postgraduate social science researchers. Research support Seminars Students are encouraged to participate in the school's busy seminar and workshop programmes, allowing them to engage with top international academics in the field. Each year, masterclasses on specific themes are held by leading researchers visiting the school. Conferences Students are also encouraged to present papers to external conferences, and their attendance is supported financially by the school. There is also an annual conference where students present their work to academic staff and fellow students. Teaching opportunities Second and third year research students are encouraged to act as academic tutors, generally to first year undergraduates.
