Welcome to the web pages of the School of Economics’ PhD programme. The School is a lively, friendly, research-oriented department, committed to excellence in research and teaching. We view our PhD students as junior academics and invest in them accordingly. We offer a stimulating research environmentseminar series with first class speakers, outstanding training opportunities and provide financial support in the form of scholarships and research support to outstanding home and overseas students.

Our goal is to help our PhD students develop their full potential and realize their ambitions. Historically, just over half of our PhD students have chosen careers in academia, while the other half have opted for careers elsewhere, mostly in government or international agencies and competition authorities around the world, or in industry. Recent placements of our PhD Students can be found here.

Feel free to browse these webpages, take a look at what our researchers are doing and at the areas they are willing to supervise new PhD students in. If you have further questions, please contact the PGR Director, Dr Corrado Di Maria (, or the PGR Admissions Officer, Prof. Steve Davies (
