Agri-Environmental Economics

The programme is open to students who have successfully completed a taught Master�s programme in economics. We aim to provide you with an environment in which you can both develop as an economist and complete a high quality thesis and provide you with the appropriate resources to achieve this. You can expect committed supervision, to be able to make regular appointments with your supervisor(s) to discuss your work, to receive timely and constructive feedback on all the work that you do, and to receive advice on how to present your work externally. In the most recent national Postgraduate Research Experience Survey, the School of Economics scored highly, with 100 per cent of respondents expressing satisfaction with the quality of the supervision and that their overall experience either met or exceeded their expectations. This underlines our commitment to creating an excellent environment for our research students. Depending on the programme and your level of achievement, you may have to take advanced training in the 1st year of study. Further research training in subsequent years includes advanced reading groups, research workshops and (if needed) attending specific courses related to your research.
