There are 2 modes of entry for research students: 1st is traditional entry to an MPhil or PhD; 2nd is the MSc plus PhD pathway, which is the 1+3 route required by the ESRC for its studentship support. All new research students are required to participate in a programme of research training modules and to take other modules that may be recommended by the supervisor of their research (exemption from research training modules can be granted to those who have already taken such modules at postgraduate level). Recent thesis titles include: Enterprise development and informality: case studies from Mozambique; essays on firm-level responses to globalisation: evidence from Mexican producers; essays on human capital formation of youth in the Middle East: the roles of migrant remittances in Jordan and armed conflict in Lebanon; exchange-rate expectations, uncertainty and output in the Southern Cone; poverty within tropical forest: assets and activities to develop pro-poor forest conservation; the impact of development interventions in Ethiopia: foreign aid, aid for trade and agricultural technology; the role of market imperfections in shaping rural household livelihoods: evidence from South Africa.
