Queen Mary University of London
This is a research-oriented postgraduate programme for students who already hold a Master's in economics, finance or a related field and who wish to progress to a Doctorate at Queen Mary or elsewhere. Students build on their Master's training by completing 2 advanced modules in macroeconomics, microeconomics, econometrics, or financial economics and can choose from a selection of option modules that cover a range of theoretical and applied topics. Students also conduct original research to fulfil the substantial dissertation component of the degree, which can form the basis of later doctoral work.
The School offers generous financial support on a competitive basis to MRes students with demonstrated potential for a successful research career. Both domestic and international candidates are eligible for tuition waivers and stipends (amounting to £16,000 for 2014-15) to cover living expenses. In addition, MRes Finance students who progress to the PhD programme will have the option to increase their level of support (to a total of £22,000 for 2014-15) by undertaking 60 hours of teaching for the School. No additional application is needed to be considered for financial support. Fellowships are also available through the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre and the College Principal Competition (please note early application deadline for such scholarships).
