Course summary

Overview

  • The MRes Economics (Pathway to PhD) is a two-year programme that provides the foundations for conducting modern research in economics. It is intended for anyone wishing to progress onto a PhD in economics or another related social science.
  • In the first year you will learn core economic models, econometric techniques and research methods.
  • In the second year you will specialise in modules covering advanced topics in the fields of econometric theory, empirical economics, microeconomic theory and macroeconomic theory. The list of topics includes auctions, computational economics, education, fiscal policy, gender, health, human development, inequality, labour supply, machine learning, networks, sexual orientation, taxation, and voting.
  • By the end of the second year you will have acquired the tools to write an MRes dissertation. The MRes dissertation, which will be supervised by one member of our academic staff, will enable you to apply your research skills and develop an in-depth knowledge in your chosen field.
  • Following successful completion of your MRes you will then progress onto our three-year PhD Economics programme at University of Exeter. You will receive guidance from our internationally respected academic staff for progressing onto our PhD Economics programme.

Teaching and research

Assessment

Assessments will be conducted via problem sets, midterm exams, final exams, presentations, and an MRes dissertation.

Supervision

Students will be assigned an academic tutor and a pastoral tutor from the first day of their MRes. ?During the MRes period you will have the opportunity to meet and discuss your research interests with academic staff to help ensure you have the best possible match with your supervisor for your PhD.

Progression to PhD

Although the MRes Economics (Pathway to PhD) can be studied as a two-year standalone programme, it is intended as a pathway to PhD.

Progression on to the PhD is subject to meeting the eligibility criteria for the PhD. This includes (1) successful completion of the MRes (achieving at least an average of 60% across all modules and at least 65% in the Dissertation) and (2) the identification of a member of academic staff in the Department of Economics who has agreed to be your PhD supervisor.
