Course summary

The most advanced research degree offered by the Department is the Integrated PhD programme, whose standard length is four years.

The Integrated PhD is an innovative programme within an active and stimulating research environment that will provide you with a thorough training in economics for researchers, with a structured pathway to undertaking your doctoral research. In your first year you will undertake a comprehensive graduate training programme to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge for research in economics.

Students will be encouraged to actively participate in seminars and workshops organised by the Department of Economics and will have the opportunity to play an active role in the Department research activities.

All PhD students can apply to become a Graduate Teaching Assistant (GTA). This role provides financial support towards the completion of the degree in exchange for undertaking a limited amount of teaching in the Department (for which GTAs will be trained). These Assistantships may be held by Home, EU and Overseas students. GTAs can be given up to 60 hours per year of undergraduate seminar teaching and are paid at an hourly rate. The annual value of a GTA post is usually in the region of £1,500-£3,500, depending on how many hours are assigned.
