This is a four-five year programme. In the first year, students entering the Integrated PhD programme are required to complete the taught elements of one of our two MSc Programmes (MSc in Economics, MSc in Economics and Econometrics). Progression onto the research element of the programme is determined by satisfactory completion of these taught elements. The Integrated PhD offers a structured PhD pathway that includes a wide choice of formal instruction, coupled with an extensive range of specialist research topics across the breadth of the subject. There is a progression from an initial emphasis on instructional modules towards full-time research, supported by high-quality supervision. The course is particularly suitable for overseas students seeking to convert from other scientific disciplines, and also those who are awarded four-year scholarships through their government or other sources.
