About

The programme structure of this Economics PhD at The University of Manchester aligns to that of top institutions in the US and the UK, providing you with rigorous advanced training and sufficient time for producing independent research, giving you a competitive edge in the job market.  

Overview

About the programme

Our five-year Economics PhD at The University of Manchester of: 

  • Two years of formal training;
  • Three years of independent research (with the possibility of a 6th year, for writing up). 

The first year of the programme is equivalent to an MSc in Economics and candidates that have already gained a similar qualification can be considered for entry directly into the second year.

In Year 2, you will take advanced PhD level courses and work on your research proposal, which will represent the basis of the subsequent three years of research.  

Programme Structure

Research:

  • The Department of Economics is recognised as a leading centre for economics research, and research-led teaching, with particular strengths in economic theory, macroeconomics and econometrics, which support strong applied work in labour economics and environmental economics.
  • Building on these core areas, recent professorial appointments are leading international research agendas in Financial Economics/Mathematical Finance, game theory with economic applications, and development macroecomics, with the latter's emphasis on poverty-reduction and growth informing the future research direction of the Growth and Business Cycles Research Group.
