The PhD in Economics is a four year research programme which has received ESRC recognition, with the route currently receiving  ESRC studentship awards via the ESRC Wales Doctoral Training Centre (these awards are available to UK/EU students only).

Both nationally and globally, additional training beyond the first year of postgraduate study is considered vital for research students in Economics. Thus, our programme involves two years of advanced course work, the first at MSc Economics level in core subjects.

In the second year, students must complete the MRes Advanced Economics, while beginning to think seriously about their PhD research topic. 

The second year includes advanced study in the core areas of advanced macro, micro and econometrics, plus a variety of fields including finance, labour, public finance, monetary, applied macroeconometrics, international trade and international macroeconomics. 

Years three and four comprise the PhD phase.
