There are no prescribed areas of study for a postgraduate degree by research within the School of Economics. Any economics based topic will be considered, as long as there are enough members of faculty capable and willing to offer research supervision. We have an interdisciplinary approach to research and strong links with the Centre for Competition Policy, the Centre for Behavioural and Experimental Social Science and other research centres. This allows research students to liaise with academics from other Schools within the University.
Students are supervised by a team of at least two members of faculty with expertise in their area and feedback and guidance are regularly provided. Members of faculty are pleased to be approached by prospective PhD candidates about the kinds of research they can supervise.
