About

The Economics programme from the University of Surrey produces graduates who are sought-after by leading economics departments, business schools, and research institutions around the world.

Overview

Why choose this course

The Economics PhD at the University of Surrey is seen as the second stage of a four-year programme. The first step is the MRes Economics programme lasting one year, and the PhD follows on from this, lasting three years (with the added possibility of extensions).

During your PhD, you’ll learn from dedicated research-active academics with expertise in a wide range of areas, including macroeconomics, microeconomics, energy economics, health economics and econometrics.

What you will study

Your first year will be spent studying core modules in microeconomics, macroeconomics and econometrics, while working on your research. The final two years of your PhD will be entirely dedicated to independent research, leading to a PhD dissertation.

You’ll also have the opportunity to contribute to the teaching and research activity of the School.
